"The Project Found Me"

MTW summer interns serving in Ethiopia visited a mother in an urban slum who was eager to tell her story. The woman's husband died and soon after she became sick with HIV/AIDS. Bedridden, she had to resign from her teaching job. Alone at home with two sons and no means of support, the woman thought she was going to die.

She called out to God, and in her words, "the project found me." The Ethiopia ACT Project, which serves poor families impacted by HIV/AIDS, helped her get medicine and care for her basic needs. The young mother told the interns that God came into the neighborhood the day the project leader, an MTW missionary, first visited her.

When the interns asked how they could pray for her, her reply stunned them. "I have no prayer requests; I only hope that you will praise God for what he has done for me. I was sick, and now I am very healthy. I had no hope, but now God has shown me joy in Christ."

Not only is God changing the lives of Ethiopians, He is also changing the lives of MTW interns who are witnesses to His grace and power.
