Ethemba Village - Turning the Hurt into Heroes
CONNECTING THE LOCAL COMMUNITY THROUGH LOVE, FAITH AND RESPECT
Ethemba Village is an initiative of Hope In Jesus Ministries, which strives to reach our local Community through serving and meeting the needs of widows and orphans left destitute, without the comfort of a home environment. Many children resort to “street living” and become dysfunctional adults.
We desire to for Ethemba Village to be a safe haven, offering Hope to the lost and broken. Our aim is to house, clothe and educate widows and orphans, giving them a future and a hope. To establish classrooms for the children and, through development programs, establish their ability to be placed in local schooling facilities. Every woman and child deserve the opportunity to develop and to become successful and inspiring entrepreneurs within our beautiful country. The Church, Government and Business Sector play an important role in this process.
FOUNDER OF HOPE IN JESUS MINISTRIES & ETHEMBA VILLAGE
Dr. Michelé Sutherland is married to Jason Anthony Sutherland, is a mother of five children and a grandson. She obtained her PhD through Dunamis International University as well as through International College of Behavioural Counseling in 2011. She is the Senior Pastor of HIJM – The Bush Church as well as Dean for the ICBC Bible School in Mulbarton. Their passion, based on the love of Jesus, leads them to serve the local community through nurturing, loving and having a heart for widows and orphaned children. The vision for Ethemba Village was laid on Pastor Michelle’s heart by God as early as 1994. It has taken years of planning and prayer to finally be on the verge of making the ministry a reality.
Donations and sponsorships are required from private individuals and through the business sector, as well as cooperation between local government and the church, to create a self-sustaining Ethemba Village.
