George Carey, former EPC World Outreach Director, recently began serving as Director of Church Development for Project Mercy, an international relief and development agency based in Fort Wayne, Ind. Project Mercy ministers primarily in the Yetebon community of Ethiopia, an area of about 70,000 people (95 percent of whom are Muslim) located about 90 miles southwest of Addis Ababa.
“Project Mercy is one of the most heart-warming and holistic ministries with which I have ever been associated,” Carey said.
Project Mercy ministers in a variety of ways, including a K-12 school for 1600 children, a home for vulnerable and orphaned children, and training of those with indigenous skills as well as in growing enhanced gardens and fruit trees. It also built a first class hospital and Health Science College to help meet the medical needs while also training new medical personnel among Ethiopians. As a result of these ministries, three vibrant churches of former Muslims have formed.
Carey is available to churches and individuals to communicate opportunities available in Ethiopia for partnerships, prayer teams, and short-term and long-term ministry assignments. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 260-747-2559.
