What a great year this has been for Faith that Works! Our focus on community development among Somali refugees and immigrants in Ethiopia has been an uphill struggle at times, but so worth it. We could not have imagined that we would have brought unity to a fractured Somali immigrant community, serving Muslims who have been displaced from their homes by famine and continuing violence in Somalia, especially the capital city of Mogadishu. It seems our steadfast and practical help broke through a barrier of division and fear that our leaders in that region tell us is unprecedented. As we look back on 2014, we give thanks for this amazing accomplishment and our donors that made it possible. In 2015 we will continue to develop community through our regional house churches, our safe home for Somali women who have been abused and persecuted, and the Somali Community Literacy Center. We are excited to have identified community leaders that can offer valuable insight and sustain these efforts as we move forward to help a growing number of Somali’s find Christ and mobilize them to reach others in dangerous areas with the hope of the gospel. In similar structure and heart, we press on in Chesterfield, MO, supporting Hispanic immigrants in education, English-language skills, and community. We are blessed and honored to work alongside our AMAZING volunteers to create a loving and gospel-centered community outreach right in our own city. Thank you to our donors, volunteers, staff, and board who make this work possible. We love each of you and pray that 2015 is amazing for you and those you love.  As you ponder New Years resolutions, consider us in your time and financial giving. There are many ways to engage and make a difference in the lives of those we serve locally and globally. Together we can make our world a better place!  Let's believe together that our lives will make an IMPACT this new year!
