Moving in full gear
Overview of 2010:
EvaSUE Alumni had a successful year in 2010 in promoting the cause for students and graduates fellowships back in Ethiopia here in the US. The purpose of the events is two fold: Create awareness and solicit support. Awareness was created in many ways: Newsletters, e mail and social media, various websites, letters to church leaders, meetings with church leaders, and area conferences. The area conferences focused on targeted cities in the east, west and Midwest cities. Cities included Los Angeles, Washington DC, Boston, New York, Denver, San Jose, Atlanta and Minneapolis. The results were astounding! We now have many churches fully supporting the cause and financial supports that passed USD 30K last year only.
Various projects have been designed and proposed by EvaSUE back in Addis Ababa to support the missions, evangelism, Discipleship and Leadership Development works. We were able to fund these proposals that directly move the institution towards achieving its vision: producing mature students and graduates who can impact their generation!
Highlights of 2011:
The promotion effort has entered its second year in 2011. Perhaps, it is moving in “Full Gear.” Church leaders gave us their hands and hearts and have welcomed our requests to venues, schedules, ministers and resources positively. We planned to reach 15 cities and logistical issues have reduced our implementation plan to 13 cities in 2011. Cities we planned to reach include Sacramento, San Diego, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Toronto, Boston, Baltimore, Seattle, Denver, Minneapolis, Virginia/DC Area, Philadelphia, and Oakland.
We are very thankful to all brothers and sisters who participated in our conferences a answered our call for partnership in, and stood with us in every possible way including financially. May God bless you abundantly! Thank you for partnering with EvaSUE Alumni in praying and encouraging the student and graduates movements back home.

We had a great time in our first EvaSUE Alumni conference for 2011 in Sacramento, CA this past weekend.
The Conference started on Thursday 3/31/2011 and concluded yesterday, Sunday 4/3/2011. We are Greatful for Ethiopian Christian Fellowship Church in Sacramento for hosting us and all the ministers who took part for the success of the event. The teaching on Romans 12: 1-2 was given by Pastor Abejehu Damene and great worship songs by the church worship leaders, and great songs by Gizachew Worku. Pastor Tamirat Haile, church leaders, ministers, and the entire congregation were very accomodating. We felt the warmth and comfort of their love and care.
JUST AMAZING! May the Lord take all the Glory!
We had 4 sessions of teachings, abundant worship time, fellowship and food, presentations on EvaSUE’s past, present and future journey. We were blessed to have yet another great presentation by San Jose area EvaSUE Local committee and the youth group who travelled for this conference (a team of 15+ folks) which was the epic of the awareness creation on challenges our youth are facing in colleges. Their drama was on the book of Daniel fast forwarded to 21st century. What a lesson!!!
Personal testimony of one of the church elder (Brother Soka) who was a campus fellowship leader back home in Ethiopia was a validating example of the great things happening in campus fellowships.
Sacramento people were generous to open their hands and hearts to support EvaSUE. Funds were raised from sales of teaching and song CDs, T shirts, booklets. We will have actual figures to report once the Alumni finance committee has all dimes and nickles accounted for.
Next up is San Diego, coming up in 4 weeks. Would you please take few minutes to give thanks for the Lord for all he is doing among students and Alumni, churches and leaders to support the student movement? While you are there, can you also pray for San Diego Event?
Thank you for your continued support to EvaSUE!
Abundant Blessings to you!
