Families & Individuals

Supporting Families and Widows
As part of our mission, we desire to play a small part in reflecting God’s heart for supporting the widows and families. As you may imagine, there are several requests for support that come across our path, but we pray for clear direction.
1) The families we support can range from a father diagnosed with HIV trying to raise his children, to a wife who is a widow because her husband abandoned his family, and she is now trying to raise six children on her own. These are those whom we desire to affirm God’s love as we support them on a monthly basis.
2) Another way we support widows is through microfinance capital. Typically, we take a group or association of widows from an area and give them seed money to start a small business. One example is that we would provide the funding for them to buy some animals and they, in turn, sell the milk, and the proceeds return to the group fund for further investment. This creates both community by having one another, and financial sustainability for their families for the future.

Supporting Individuals With Needs
Meet Abebech. When she came to ask for help, she had a large and painful facial tumor. In September 2014, she was able to have a much needed surgery with God’s provision for her through Ebenezer.
There are other stories, and those who–like Abebech–have become a part of the Ebenezer family. Ebenezer supports those with disabilities who are in need of medical care and educational assistance. In this regard, sometimes the practical investment is monthly or one-time, but the relationship is on-going. We are privileged to serve these individuals, because of how much we know God esteems and values them.
