Michael and Freweini have one son, Temesgen who is 2 years old. Michael’s mother, Hiwet, lives with the family and helps with babysitting. Michael has lived in McLean County for 18 years. The family is originally from Eritrea, East Africa which is near Ethiopia.
Michael works at Marcfirst as a job coach and has been employed there for 10 years. He also works for Vonachen Services. Freweini also works with both Marcfirst and Vonachchen.
Michael, Freweini and family are members at Holy Apostles Christian Orthodox Church of Normal and are so thankful for their Church family. They like following current events, watching sports, walking and going to Church activities. Their son enjoys playing with toys and has an early interest in computers! Michael’s mother, Hiwet, is a blessing to the family and they are thankful she is with them here in the United States.
Michael says, “Building with Habitat is a great pleasure and it helps encourage us that there are good people who care. We know also that God is behind this and He has the right timing for everything to come together. We thank Him and Habitat!”
