July 2-19, 2020 Up to 20 people Ethiopia $1,400/person


Ethiopia is one of the oldest nations in history (mentioned 38 times in the Bible and as early as Numbers 12:1). It’s also the place where one of the first Christian missionaries, the Ethiopian eunuch, shared the good news of Jesus with his people. It’s place with amazing people where in 2020 more missionaries are needed.  Join It Is Written as we proclaim the everlasting gospel in the second most populous nation in Africa.
