.Habi's Thoughts on Moving to Ethiopia.

The number one question that Jim and I have received upon people hearing our news about moving to Ethiopia for missions has been, what does Habi think about it? So, I thought I would let him share here some of his thoughts. I am so proud of this boy and the maturity and love for Jesus that He continues to display. God really has done a big work in his heart and his life this year, and it has been such a blessing to be part of his story and to witness the changes and growth.

This is what Habi has to say:

My name is Habi, my real name is Habtamu. I was born in ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPA.

I feel absolutely amazing about what GOD is doing in our family. I know that it’ll be hard for me to go back there, but I mean GOD wants us there. I JUST have to encourage my family, you know? When I needed help, they were there for me, when I needed food they were there for me, and now they have this opportunity. I have to help, you know? They need me, you know? I’ll have to say, I’m here for you guys, what can I do? I know that it’ll be totally different when I go back to ET with food, friends, and everything will be different, but they really want me there with them. They said to me this, Habi we want to go to Ethiopia to live, we feel like that is our home – Ethiopia not here. We want to be able to help your friends -street kid’s  -who need our help.

 I was like man, alright let’s do this! Although, I am nervous too, because I’m going back to my home town in ET.

I’m really happy that I have a chance to help street kids. I am excited to be able to teach them about Christ, you know? I can share what Christ did in my life, and I want to be able to tell them what GOD has for them. I want them to trust Him, and to be able follow Him. Showing them Who is Christ, and what He Has for them. AND GOD wants me to go back there too. Because, He showed me what being in a family is like, and how I need to teach my friends and say, you have to believe in Christ, you have to trust Him, and if you can trust Him he will never let you down.
