Argaw and Rachel Ayele have been serving in Hawassa, Ethiopia since January 2006. Since then, they’ve had five children: Adonijah, Elias, Genesis, Gracie and Stella. They started a locally licensed non-governmental organization called Ebenezer Supporting and Development Association (ESDA). ESDA’s focus is to serve those in desperate situations. Through ESDA they have started two children’s homes. Ebenezer Grace Children’s Home was started in January 2010 and Lantu’s Home, which is a home that exists to help children needing specialized care, was started in October 2015. As of 2017, ESDA has also taken on a third children’s home called House of Hope that exists for children and families that have HIV. Other projects through ESDA include family support, educational support, and a school feeding project. Through these different ministries, the Ayeles aim to fulfill God’s call on their life by sharing the love of Christ to the people of Ethiopia.
