On January 7th, Ethiopians Celebrate Melkam Gena, or MERRY CHRISTMAS!
In Denver, on January 8, 2011, at 3 p.m. Abenezer Founder and Director Alemeshet Teklyoneis has invited American/Ethiopian Adoptive Families in the Denver Area to Celebrate Gena with her and her Church Family, Ethiopian Evangelical Church in honor and appreciation of the Adoptive Families, to Thank them, Welcome them to the community, and to ask the most important question of "How can we, the Ethiopian Community, stand beside you and your family?" It is her vision that the community at large will open doors to the adoptive families, bonds will be formed, and culture, language and traditions will be preserved. In most exciting news, Alemeshet has been selected to serve on the newly formed Ethiopian Community Committee in Aurora, Colorado, representing twenty-five thousand Ethiopians in the Denver area. On January 16, 2011, this will become official in a meeting including the Mayor of Denver and City Officials. Because of her vision, the needs of the American/Ethiopian Adoption Community will be a priority as she serves as a liason for the community.
