Prayer Focus


Argaw and Rachel Ayele serving orphans in Hawassa, 

Request prayer for:

  • Argaw and Rachel as they travel without their kids. Virginia is the first stop. 
  • Their house in Ethiopia. They've started the building process and are trusting the Lord to provide the money to finish it. 
  • Them to finish their time in the US well and be a blessing and a light to their family and friends.
  • Those still filling in for them in Ethiopia.
