Empower Women – Empower a Nation

Young women with no opportunity for education are usually forced to marry at a very young age and to become vulnerable and impoverished with little chance to succeed.  Hope Community Services is changing the chances of young women through opportunities for education.

Hope From the Ashes

Young men caught in poverty and without opportunity are often caught in addiction to drugs.  Hope Community Services provides immensely successful training and restoration for hundreds of young men.

This is one pocket of 1000’s of people crushing in on young men distributing the first copies of the Gospel of John

After 10 years of strenuous and complex work of Gabe Beyenne (pictured in the inset) to accomplish the translation and printing of the Bible in Tigreina, the language of the Northern region of Tigrai in Ethiopia.  They had no Bible except in Geez the ancient language which was incomprehensible to the people.  This is the first day of distribution of the first copies of the Scriptures.
