Our forth day of house visits was the most difficult, but the most transformational. A few members of our team were, in a small way, persecuted for their faith in Jesus Christ as their savior. We are all safe and rejoicing that God was still victorious and kept us safe. It gave us a glimpse of the persecution Jesus went through during his time on earth.
We are honored to be walking alongside our disciple makers and guides here in Ethiopia. They are brave and courageously standing in their faith and sharing the love of God knowing full well the persecution they will face.
We have also been blessed to travel with two Ethiopian woman who are faithfully serving the Lord and sharing their testimony. One of these amazing young woman who we met on our second day of house visits, gave her life to the Lord and shared about human trafficking she has witnessed herself. From then on she has continued sharing her testimony along with our teammates during house visits. It has been an honor to share the gospel with her when we first met, then not only hear her share the horrific details of Ethiopian children being trafficked, but now hear her sharing the gospel in homes as well.
God is vividly at work and I am so grateful for all He has done for me and this team as a whole. Many thanks for your continued prayers!
