My name is Dr. Teresa Jones and I am the proud founder of Growing Relationships Across Communities Everywhere Now, (G.R.A.C.E. Now) and co-founder of Ethiopia Youth Impact Academy, (E.Y.I.A.) along with Ephrem Hagos. Through these ministries as well as Ephrem’s own ministry Ethiopia Youth Soccer, (EYIA) I assist in hosting annual tournaments in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and attend 2-3 mission trips each year. As a chiropractor, I provide chiropractic treatments for those in need of my services. With a team of 10-20 people we also bring toothbrushes, toothpaste, mouthwash, and fluoride treatment for anyone who needs it. Along with these services we have bible lessons, perform puppet shows and skits, sing, and dance about God. With 75% of the Ethiopian population being under the age of 25, it is important to instill the love of Christ into their world, which has been stricken with poverty. By focusing on the youth through Ethiopia Youth Soccer, these young individuals are able to make tangible goals for their lives by working together as a team and learning how to trust others. It is through these missions that we can share this love and passion with local schools, churches, villages, and any organization that is willing to have us. Assisting in the funding for the library in Korah, Ethiopia has allowed us to visually see all the hard work and love we have for this community. Each mission trip has left a lasting impression on my life and is the motivational force that drives me to continue these efforts for the loving people of Ethiopia.

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and
you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I
needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me,
I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
On recent missions my journey to Ethiopia and Kenya has provided the children living in the streets and orphanages with ministry guidance and chiropractic treatment.
Each year Ethiopia Youth Impact Academy works to bring together compassionate Christians to positively impact the lives of children living in tragic conditions. During these Missions we like to surprise the kids with a message of new hope and a gift to make them feel special.
Please consider providing a monetary donation so we can put a smile on a child’s face. The funds will allow us to purchase gifts while we are in Ethiopia and Kenya, making it less expensive than shipping toys from the United States.

Additionally, we need your prayer support. Prayer is the fuel that will allow us to be successful as we follow God's calling to minister our brothers and sisters in Ethiopia and Kenya.
