Ethiopia Ministry Update

Greetings from Ethiopia! Just last month we received an update from our Indigenous Leader following a Treasure distribution near the border of Kenya. This outreach happened among an Ethiopian people group that predominantly resides in the southern desert regions of the country. As semi-nomadic pastoralists, they often struggle with the adverse effects of drought, famine, and inter-tribal conflicts.

Despite the challenges they face, these people cherish a strong sense of belonging within their community. This includes religion, as the vast majority of these people identify as Muslims. They also hold tightly to their traditional beliefs which include witchcraft and the worship of creation.

Our leader excitedly shared, “175 people gave their lives to Christ from Muslim areas and are ready to be baptized. We provided all community members and their family leaders with audio Bibles through our missionaries in this region. The heart touching recordings on the Treasure are full of life changing messages!

I hope today or tomorrow we will receive the recent audio Bibles you sent. Give glory to Jesus. May God bless you for sending all these Treasures to Ethiopia.”

Shortly after this update was shared, we received a second mission activity report with these beautiful water baptism photos. Because these new brothers and sisters are making a public declaration of their faith in this sensitive Islamic area, our leaders asked that we blur all faces for their protection.

Please join us in praying for these believers as they bring their new faith back into their communities. Pray for soft hearts and open doors as the gospel message continues to spread powerfully among the least reached of Ethiopia!
