Hello, my name is Tammy, and my area of service provides aid to women and children through Transformational Disciple Making Ministries (TDMM) at their Light & Life Center in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a population of over 110 million people, of which 51 % is under the age of 20. Women and children represent the most impoverished and disenfranchised in the country. My goal is to connect with women and children by offering them a safe place to maintain personal hygiene and hear the gospel message. By joining and supporting the indigenous organization, TDMM, long term, I will help bring the love of Christ to the people living in the horn of Africa. This ministry is already making a difference in so many lives in Ethiopia through gospel outreach and relational contact. Dozens of souls are being saved, baptized, and new churches planted.  

In my local church, I am the LoveLoud Ministry director. This ministry is designed to bridge the gap between the community and local church membership. I have been serving locally in church for over 20 years. My previous mission trips to Ethiopia ignited a desire for a longer, more impactful commitment in Addis Ababa and nearby regions. God opened doors for me to serve through the Light Life Center of TDMM, a community center created to help the people of the local community by providing various resources otherwise unavailable, such as English as a Second Language instruction and community revitalization projects. From the center’s Compassion Wing, which houses the women’s shelter, women learn practical trades that help them become self-sufficient. With your help, I will join the team and continue to transform families and communities with the gospel of Jesus Christ. By engaging the unengaged, I will bring life and light into seemingly hopeless situations. 

Thank you for joining me as a sustaining supporter - together we will make a permanent and life-changing impact in the horn of Africa.
