Christian groups continue to lend their support to the victims of an emerging famine in Ethiopia. Glen Guthridge, missionary with the Southern Baptist International Mission Board, says they’re targeting the people who aren’t in the food aid pipeline. “What we are seeking to do is seeking to find places were there are gaps that need to be filled. A response that has a more human face to it. We want it to be able to deal with some of the needs that are being faced by the people who may be missed by these bigger organizations.” Guthridge says evangelism is moving forward as they empower churches to assist. “And we’re going to continue to try to do those kinds of things that will multiply the efforts that are going on in ways that will make a difference for Christ.” IMB officials say every dollar raised goes directly to relief efforts.
