Name Your Number For Sisters On A Mission


About Sisters On A Mission

Caroline and Meron are celebrating their 12th year with a big wish.....to go to Ethiopia on a mission trip this November.  





Name Your Number Details

Born just 12 days apart, these "twin" sisters have shared experiences and milestones over the years. 

First days of school, 

first soccer games 

and ballet recitals, 


losing the same tooth on the same day, 


and a dream to one day go to Ethiopia.


Caroline has known of this far away land for as long as she can remember.  As a toddler she prayed for her "baby" sister to one day come home from Ethiopia.  That baby sister finally came home in January 2010, as a three and a half year old (and with a big sister as well) and they've been buddies ever since.  She has wanted to go visit Ethiopia and meet our sponsor kids for years and can't wait to finally see this country that has been such a big part of her life.


Because Meron came home at such a young age, she has few memories from her life in Ethiopia. She is hoping this trip will help her reconnect with her birth country and is longing to meet her remaining birth relatives while we are there.  She is looking forward to being surrounded by the beautiful Ethiopian culture that we have embraced and celebrated as a family.

They have both seen their three oldest siblings travel back with us and always asked when it would be their turn. This has been an especially hard wait on Meron as her birth mother passed away unexpectedly shortly after Hermela's trip in 2014.  She has always regretted not being able to see her birth mom again and is anxious to return to Ethiopia to spend time with her older brother and relatives there.

As with all of our other kids, the girls will need to fundraise for their trip.  The cost of travelling to Ethiopia is high, but it is so worth it. Without the generosity of others, a trip like this would not be possible for them.  They have witnessed God's faithfulness time and time again and I know their faith will be strengthened as they put their trust in Him for the provision of these funds.

And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19

So the girls are doing a "Name Your Number" fundraiser. 

It's simple.  Just choose a number off of the board that is not already crossed out and donate that amount.  So, if you select number 2, you give $2, number 25, you give $25, number 115, $115 ect. We will then cross out the number you choose and write your name in the square.  It will serve as a testament of the generosity of all who donate as well as a reminder of God’s faithfulness to the girls.


We have numbers from 1 to 144.  

The number 144 is a significant number to us and has had quite an impact on our family. 


When we started the adoption process in 2009, we were shocked to discover that there were approximately 144 Million orphans in the world.  As we looked at that number, it seemed so overwhelming.  With a number so big, what could one family do?  Would adopting one child even make a difference? 

 One, in the sea of 144 million, doesn't seem like it's making that big of a difference, but for that one child it makes all the difference in the world.  

144 Million Orphans - 1 (or in our case, minus 5) 

So would you join us as we seek to bring our daughters to minister to our precious sponsor children and their communities in Ethiopia?

Name your number and help these sisters on a mission fulfill their dream and if you don't mind, SHARE THEIR PAGE and help them get the word out (their mom won't let them have                                       social media yet ;-)

 

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.

Ecclesiastes 4:9
