Through Jenna’s Eyes….

It’s been one week since we made our journey home from Ethiopia, and after sleeping for several days I think I may be able to form a few thoughts about the trip.
I learned quickly after arriving that I had come with a “hero” mentality. That I had something to offer these women and that by me being there I was going to be a blessing to them. And to be honest, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. I had nothing, I haven’t lived the lives they have had to, I haven’t experienced the pain that they have, and I wasn’t broken enough to relate. These women had more to teach me then I could ever teach them. And on top of that, we really aren’t the hero in any story anyways, Jesus is always the hero!
I witnessed these women and the graduates of the Keziah house worship without shame, with passion and joy. Freedom was theirs for the taking and they were taking it! Amen! I wish so badly that we could see that happen in our culture, that the blood of Jesus would be enough for us to shout it from the roof tops that we are free! We can live in victory because of what Jesus has done for us!

I also was so encouraged in knowing that I didn’t have to travel all the way to Africa to make a difference, that the biggest difference that you and I can make is supporting ETS and the work that the staff is already doing over there. Fund raising can be so much fun and personally am looking forward to a year of fund raising to help support these 14 women in the current class. YOU don’t need to travel to Ethiopia to make a difference either! You are making the biggest difference by joining in on forget the frock, month of change, and tithing to your church that supports ETS. Or go above and beyond and be creative in your own fund raising efforts❤️ It really does make the difference.
It was such an honor to be able to be apart of ETS for a week in Ethiopia and meet the wonderful staff and women! And I feel like I came back with a bigger picture of Gods kingdom then I have ever had before.
Thank you to everyone who supported my journey❤️
