Since 2012, First Pres has been one of the sending churches in a multi-church mission trip to our mission partner, Project Mercy, in Ethiopia. This year’s team of 23 will be comprised of a medical team (Surgical, OB/GYN, Primary Care/Pediatrics and Support Staff) and an educational team (Health Education and Mentoring). God has organized an amazing team, 9 of whom are from or related to First Pres. Please be praying for clarity in regards to travel safety as there are tensions between the largest people group, the Oromio, and the government. We also continue to pray for the team’s unity as preparations are made for their trip October 14–29, 2017.

Mark your calendar for October 8, 2017 when the Ethiopia team is commissioned in Sunday services and again for November 12, 2017 when the team shares about their Ethiopia trip experience.
