The Ministry

Marta and Deme are presently providing food relief to the more than 253,000 people in the 180-mile circumference around Yetebon. Since 1993, Marta and Deme have focused Project Mercy’s efforts in community development in Yetebon addressing people’s basic needs for education, health care, and vocational skills with the goal of sharing Christ.

About Project Mercy

Project Mercy works together with the rural community in Yetebon, Ethiopia in tangible ways to help them become sustainable. In what has now become Ethiopia’s worst famine, Project Mercy is also involved in food relief efforts. As they systematically disperse aid to the greatest needs first, they ensure the most critically malnourished receive the sustaining help they desperately need. The community development and education programs also are helping to diminish the previous 100% illiteracy rate and lack of long-term skills. The development project is helping the community to become self-sufficient and providing hope for their future – physically and spiritually.

Project Mercy Prayer Requests & Praise Report – September 2014

Please be in prayer for:

    • For Marta and Deme’s son, Mickey – he was recently hospitalized but now home.  His medical issues were serious but, thankfully, he is gradually recuperating.  Please keep Mickey in your prayers for a full recovery.
    • For Kalkidan – the 8-year-old Yetebon girl who came to the States two years ago with a brain tumor that was surgically removed; she has a recurring tumor that has grown quickly.  She is now in Riley Hospital in Indianapolis and underwent surgery.  Please keep her in your prayers.
    • For Deme and Lali, PM’s Addis Director (and Marta’s son), and his wife Wanda – for the Lord’s provision and timing in all the projects’ needs.
    • For God’s continued leading and guiding in all Project Mercy is doing in Ethiopia in order to impact many lives physically and spiritually.  Jesus said, “whatever you do for the least of these… you do for ME” (Matthew 25:40).  It is our mandate to be HIS hand extended to the lost and needy as we partner together in faithfully serving HIM.

Thank you once again for your partnership… God bless you!
