Prayer Request: Week of June 2nd, 2019
Berhanu is one of the most respected priests in the ancient, traditional Church in Ethiopia. He was educated using traditional texts, not a Bible. But contrary to the teachings of his church, he believes with all his heart that Jesus, the Living Word of God, is the only way to salvation. He is a key coordinator in a renewal movement carried out by courageous clerics within the traditional Ethiopian church. In the past five years, Bible placement and training has been the priority. There is an extraordinary openness right now as the growth of Islam makes traditional churches willing to accept help. But, no one knows for how long. And now with the Quran also available in the Amharic language, the clock is ticking.
Please pray for this renewal in the Ethiopian churches, that open hearts will be filled with the Living Word of God!
