Overview

This is going to be It Is Written’s first mission trip to Ethiopia. We are headed to one of those communities that most of the world overlooks, Negele. Yet the hundreds of thousands of people who live there desperately need medical and dental attention as well as the good news of Jesus. Thus, this trip involves both health professionals and evangelists. The health professionals will be working at a hospital built and funded by Christians. The door is wide open for our health professionals to fully practice their skills. In the evening, people will be invited to hear Bible presentations.
