The Ordinary Hero Life Center is made possible through the partnership with Bisrat Fantahun Guesthouse and the Beth Venable Memorial Fund.
Beth Ratliff Venable was a loving wife and mother of four, who lost her life to a brain disease in August, 2012. She had just become an adoptive mother to a beautiful son from Ethiopia months before she lost her life. Because of Beth's heart for Ethiopia and children in need, donations were collected on her behalf which turned into the Beth Venable Memorial Fund. The Life Center is made possible by this fund. It is our mission to see that new life, new hope, ministry, and outreach will spring forth from the Life Center because of the life, legacy, and passion for the children of Ethiopia, that Beth left behind.
We look forward to seeing short-term mission teams, adoptive families, long term missionaries, and guests experience the hope and joy that awaits you in this Life Center & Guest Home.
