Ethiopia and the orphan crisis

Orphans' Matchbox (the blog for the Christian Alliance for Orphans) mentioned a Washington Post article written by Johnny Carr from Bethany. There is a great need all over the world to engage the local church in caring for orphans. The model of connecting US churches with the indigenous church in Ethiopia is a great way to help. It's hard to imagine 800,000 AIDS orphans in the world. But this is 800,000 in only one country...
