Greetings Friends and Family All I want to do is serve said my sweet daughter-in-law, Megan. Newlywed and recent UC Davis graduate, Megan, will finally join her husband to live in North Carolina at the end of August. Our Fall 2013 Ethiopia Trip is planned for a short two weeks after she arrives at her new home. It warmed my heart and encouraged my soul to hear her words of commitment and willingness to do Gods will. The dates of our trip to Ethiopia are Sept. 1326, 2013.
Planning and praying for Gods will to be done through our Fall 2013 Ethiopia Trip.

Ethiopia Fall 2012 in Addis influenced hundreds of pastors and leaders.

Dr. Phil Walker will be teaching the men and I will be teaching Womens Conferences in Addis Ababa and Hawassa on the curriculum: Purpose Driven Life Seminar #5 Spiritual Gifts. Megan and I chose the teams theme verse: To prepare Gods people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up. Eph. 4:12. We appreciate your prayers for planning and for our financial need. The total trip cost is $7000. This includes round-trip airline tickets, hotel, meals, in-country transportation and conference costs (copies of student notes, translators, facility rental and food for conference attendees). Please consider sending an extra gift this month to cover Megan and my trip. Earmark: TEAM GIESBRECHT ETHIOPIA FALL 2013. August 2013 is Africa Rising month! Calling all WOMEN!
