selam-cropped-2r1. How does your role at Restore Hope help churches on mission?

I handle the donations and money that come in and out of the organization and input the data into our system to stay organized and efficient.

2. What qualifies you to play the role you play for Restore Hope?

Besides being good at my job, I am personally involved at the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and I serve on a church-based group that always tries to give back to churches and kids back in my motherland, so I can relate to what Restore Hope is working to accomplish.

3. If you have another job besides Restore Hope, what is your title and what do you do?

I do not have another job outside of Restore Hope.

4. What do you like to do in your spare time?

I am co-leader of my church group as I mentioned earlier, so in my free time, I like to organize new activities and fundraisers that we can take part in.

5. What is your favorite missions quote?

“What we do for ourselves dies with us, but what we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.” —  Albert Pine
