...to the ends of the earth.

In humility...power!

FALL 2016

The light of the gospel in remote T'ara

I was deeply moved to see this gathering of believers praying in Sala, one of the least reached tribal areas of southern Ethiopia recently reached by Me'en evangelists. A dependency on prayer to their Heavenly Father, for even their most basic needs...Precious!!!

Forgiveness: The power of Christ over culture.

After sharing my message from the Bible to this group of T'ara believers, this man, Patachew, one of the first believers, fell to his knees seeking forgiveness and peace with God and man. His son was murdered only three weeks before while walking back from his fields. The murderer had not been identified thus fear in the camp. Also on his knees was the father-in-law, Jango, who was the first T'ara believer. Patachew's son was married to Jango's daughter. The distraught widow with tears rolling down her face was sitting beside me with her little baby.  Patachew said "Our custom is to not only kill the murderer but to kill his whole family, but because of what we have heard from God's Word through Mr. Bill's message, we are to respond in God's way, not our way. God is above our culture. I ask God's forgiveness for the wrong thoughts that I have had in recent days. I desire peace with God and peace with my fellow man." This moment was one of the most defining moments of God's power in that culture and for me as well. WOW, what a God we serve!!

 

Please Pray

  • REJOICE! Over 10% of the approamately 30,000 T'ara population are now Christ-followers
  • Pray for the families of Patachew and Jango as they grieve their loss. Ask God to grant them comfort from His Word and peace in their hearts .
  • Pray for the Me'en evangelists and their families as they carry the light of the gospel with courage and great sacrifice.
