ETHIOPIA

Our mission in Ethiopia is to partner with local ministries to impact their community and share the love of Christ.

Tap on the flip boxes below and read more about how PCC partners with various ministries like HMCHA (Holistic Ministry of the Children of the Horn of Africa) to make an impact in the Yerer mountain community for Jesus Christ…

Until recently there were only a handful of sponsored Ethiopian children that passed the National Exam to be able to go on to Highschool. HMCHA rented them small rooms in the city of Bishoftu so they could attend school. The rent money came from Unleashing Hope!
This was a challenge for the families who had to decide if they wanted to send their 14-year-old daughter to live by herself in a mud walled room with a single light bulb and no running water in the “big city” where she could continue her education and better her life.
With God’s help we raised over $107,000 US (with $15,000 coming from PCC’s Unleashing Hope Campaign) to purchase a 6600 sq ft compound/lot with buildings on it that can become a boarding house. These Highschool girls will have a home come Fall 2022!
Mucel’s Templo Siloé Church was 3 concrete walls in 2009. Over the years it’s become a center for church and community activity.
AWANA was launched and with strong leadership, expanded to a second Mayan village.
During COVID-19, food was scarce. Through Unleashing Hope, PCC provided 2 food distributions for the village of 1,200 people.

In order to reach the forgotten people, we work alongside Megersa Kumbi, originally from Ethiopia. When he was called by God to serve the forgotten children of East Africa, he gave up his job with the Cancer Society so he would have time to make a difference. We will also be working with HMCHA (Holistic Ministry of the Children of the Horn of Africa), a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
