Bill and Grace Harding

Off to Ethiopia: A time to celebrate and worship.


THEN...1983...the church underground, intense persecution...drilling for water.

In 1983 at the height of famine and drought crippling the country along with a ruthless communist dictatorship in power, God miraculously makes provision for our family to arrive in Ethiopia. Bill began to drill wells, cap springs and provide clean drinking water to thousands of people in rural southern Ethiopia in Yirgachefe. This was the platform to share the Spring of Life, the Lord Jesus Christ in the huts and hamlets among the Gedeo people.

NOW...2017...the church thriving...hungry for the Word...sending their own missionaries!

On Tuesday, February 7, 2017 Bill will take off to Ethiopia again. Others will join him there. This time it is to celebrate the "The Silver Jubilee Anniversary of Gospel Expansion" among the SIM related Kale Heywet Churches in the Yirgachefe area. This means celebrating the sending of their own cross-cultural missionaries. Over one hundred have been sent out by these rural churches to places like Dubai, South Sudan, and other countries including their own.  They are bringing in 45 of their missionary families to honor, esteem, hear their reports and have them challenge the crowd to sending more. Thousands upon thousands will be their to worship the God who sent his own son, the Lord Jesus Christ and who calls them to be part of His great redemptive plan. I am so excited and honored to participate!

Requesting your steadfast prayer.
