I met Alazar on my very first trip to Ethiopia over 6 years ago. We became fast friends and stayed in contact. I love his heart and passion and his love for Jesus. Through the years of knowing Alazar and seeing him on each of my trips, I got to watch him fall in love, get married, and now have a beautiful baby girl. The best part is now I have another good friend, Alazar’s wife, Netsanet. Netsanet is now on staff with Eyes That See at the Keziah House, helping to care for our women. She has a heart and passion that matches the Kingdom. Here is what she has to say about being a part of ETS:
The main reason I wanted to join Eyes That See is because its mission is based on the Bible and it is Christ-centered. Growing up as an orphan myself, I always imagined myself being one of these women on the street or one of the orphans abandoned. But God helped me and now [I] can see what my sisters are going through and it’s my turn to be there for them. I would like to see those women under such situations [get] to know Christ and become self-sufficient. This is what I feel.
We are so thankful for Netsanet and her husband Alazar who have both been a huge part of Eyes That See’s success in Ethiopia. As you drop coins into your jars today, say a quick prayer for these humble and dedicated people.
