How did you get connected to OH?
I first heard about OH at the Guest House I used to work at. Since then I have loved what they do so much, they do such a good thing. When the OH Life Center opened I was happy to join the team as an assistant chief.
Why do you love helping people / serving people?
Helping people is one of the deeds of God. Helping people can be done in so many ways: praying for them, listening to them, helping them financially, and assisting them in what they do.
Helping is one way of expressing our love to people. God is love. So when I am serving people, I feel like I am serving God. In the Bible in Matthew Chapter 25 it says, “Then the king shall say unto them, come, you blessed of my father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world, for I was an hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me water.” I believe serving others is our responsibility as Christians. If we know God we should serve others. Serving is a sign of love and Christianity. Hebrew 13:1-3
What do you love most about Ethiopia?
I love our culture. I love how we help each other in so many of our problems. I am happy that I am Ethiopian.
