The Schillings are a missionary family of 10. Charlie and Bonnie have been the directors of Rivers of Living Water ~ Helping Orphans and Widows in Need for the past four years, working with church planters and the local church in Ethiopia, Africa. They have an orphan sponsorship program which provides education, clothing, food, medical, and most important, ongoing spiritual care and hope for 130-plus fatherless children. They also raise funds for clean water solutions, church planting, widow programs, feeding programs, and more is on the horizon.

While in Ethiopia, it was emphatically confirmed that the Lord was calling them to serve alongside Him full-time. They currently live in Addis Ababa, where they have a House Church Bible study, but plan on moving to the village where they serve to manage the program in person and to show Christ’s love to the children. The Schillings have been invited to help start an English-speaking church service in the evenings, and to help organize children, youth, and women’s ministries within the local church. They’ve also been invited to establish a house church, as well as help teach English classes at the school. In the future, the Schillings hope to organize evangelistic crusades, organize and invite mission teams to come serve, and host them at the church’s dormitories and nearby guest house.

Thank you for your partnership with the Schilling Family. They need your continued prayer and your financial support in order to continue this call on their lives in expanding the kingdom of God in Ethiopia.
