Travis and Emily serve with the CMF church-planting team in Nekempte, Ethiopia, partnering with the local Kristos Andinet churches (KAC) among the Oromo and Gumuz people.
Their focus has been two-fold: To cultivate strong leaders for the KAC churches through biblical and theological trainings and to develop income-generating activities (IGAs) that will provide sustainable income to KAC churches. Travis has created a variety of IGAs to serve the various locations and skills of the KAC evangelists. He is currently developing grain grinding mill, cow-fattening and honey bee projects as well as solar-powered cell phone charging stations.
The Weeks joined the Ethiopia church planting team in 2013. They have three children: Clare (2013), Charley (2015) and Jude (2017).
