This week two members of our staff, Russ Cooper and Alan Teel will leave for an Ethiopian Mission / Vision Trip. This trip is a partnership with Indigenous Outreach International. While in Ethiopia we will be meeting and encouraging local believers, conduct a 2 day seminar over the New Testament and preach in local churches. Ethiopia is only 17% Evangelical and its lost population is over 21 million. Please pray for the safety and spiritual impact of the team. For more information about IOI please visit
