Africa – Ethiopia
Something extraordinary is happening in Africa, Ethiopia. The Jewish believer, the Christian and others from various cultures are making every effort. They are working to preserve the unity the Spirit gives through the binding power of shalom. (Ephesians 4:3 CJB) The Africa: Ethiopian Assembly of God pastors are responding with open hearts. Ethiopian pastors are better understanding the roots of Christianity. In addition, doors are opening for cooperation between churches and messianic congregations.
This will allow for training, fellowship, and outreaches. Meanwhile we are witnessing something epic. The common goal of serving God overrides all differences between people and unites in peace. Further more the Jewish population generally lives in the mountainous northern region of Ethiopia. Their communities are remote. Living conditions are primitive. Water sources are sparse. Meanwhile outsiders often hold superstitions about the Jewish people. This area is where church plants and wells are planned. The Jewish people will hear the Good News of Messiah in these remote areas.
“Furthermore, he gave some people as emissaries, some as prophets, some as proclaimers of the Good News, and some as shepherds and teachers. Their task is to equip God’s people for the work of service that builds the body of the Messiah, until we all arrive at the unity implied by trusting and knowing the Son of God, at full manhood, at the standard of maturity set by the Messiah’s perfection.”—Eph 4:11-13 CJB
