Day 21: Meet Yonas

Yonas with Sammy

Yonas Tesfaye is the Ethiopian Director of Eyes That See. Yonas is not one of those directors who sits around barking orders; he is in the trenches, fighting for these women and children every day. In fact, he was hired as director because of his dedication to the Kingdom. Our US directors, Matt and Nikki Ness, saw him working in a very difficult situation while at another organization, and they said, “This is the type of man we want to spearhead kingdom work in Ethiopia.” Since then, Yonas has worked tirelessly to see God’s mission go forward. From meeting with government officials to handing a cup of hot tea to a thirsty child, Yonas does it all.

As you continue to collect change, spend some time praying for Yonas and his family (pictured above with his son Sammy). Thank God that He uses all kinds of people all around the world to further the Kingdom!
