1. The Lord is my shepard; I shall not want.
2. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
. . . . . He leadeth me beside the still waters.
3. He restoreth my soul;
. . . . He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
4. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
. . . . I will fear no evil; for Thou art with me;
. . . .Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.
5. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies;
. . . . . Thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever and forever. Amen.
And the Angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying rise up, and go toward the south
unto the way that goes down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.
And he arose and went; and behold, a man of Ethiopia, a Eunuch of great authority
under Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her
treasure and had come to Jerusalem for to worship . . .
Acts 8 : 26-27
The Gift of God can never be destroyed by man.
Civilizations pass but praising of God in a heavenly manner would never cease.
By the Grace and Will of Almighty God and with the blessings of The Holy Synod in Addis Ababa,
Ethiopia; and the Prayers of my Sisters at Getesemani Monastery in Sebeta, Ethiopia; I have a vision
and Prayers to establish a Ethiopian Orthodox Christian Monastery in Miami, South Florida;
with detached living, and teaching facilities for Ethiopian Orthodox Monks in the USA.
It is our long term mission to be an extention in the USA of our sister monastery GETESEMANI in Sebeta, Ethiopia.
A monastery in the USA would provide a home base for our older orphan girls who have completed high school and wish
to pursue a College Education in the US. Thank you for your most kind and blessed support.
Please Pray for us and may God Bless you with His Grace. Igzee'otesehalene.
We are engaged in on-going fund raising efforts to purchase the suitable property. so we may have a permanent place.
At the moment we are like Bahetawes / hermits, living and praying singularly. Please keep us in your prayers
Please contact us by e-mail if you have questions or if you would like to assist us in our Humble Efforts.
Thank You and May the Grace of God be with you all eternally
Igzee'abiher misle kwulikimu (The Lord be with you all)
እግዘኤ'አብሔር ምስለ ክዉልክሙ
By the Prayers and the
hands of man let
God's Will be Done. Amen
