Weekend Training

One of the great strengths of the Ethiopian church, one of the gifts, is evangelism. We had our first training weekend with our field students (they spend 9 months in unreached areas as part of our program). According to their reports, they’ve witnessed to over 1200 people and 116 have believed in Christ. They’ve been in these various locations for 10 weeks. This means they’ll get to continue evangelism and begin discipling all of these converts.

About half our time was spent hearing reports, encouraging teams, and praying. For these students who are working deep in the countryside, most of them where there are no churches, the weekend was a great blessing and encouragement.

Rebecca dropped by at meal time. Oh how they love us well!

We had one meal of kitfo, finely minced meat. You can see the plate nearest the bottom corner–the meat is red. That’s because it’s raw. Even mine which I ordered cooked wouldn’t have made the “rare” cut in any US restaurant.
