Breakthrough in the Northern part of Ethiopia
Northern part of Ethiopia is one of the regions in the country that is resistant for the gospel of Jesus Christ. Few years ago God has given us direction to go to the region and plant church. And we sent a missionary named by Mesfin Mengistu in the town called Bahirdar which is the capital city of the Amhara region. God has given him an open door to preach the gospel and win many souls.
Last month we have baptized 12 people in the beautiful lake called Tana. Our church in that town is growing and its members reach to more than 50. Since the region is one of the unreached areas in Ethiopia, this result is very encouraging for us to keep pressing on in our works of evangelism and church planting.
The evangelism and church planting movement in the central part of Oromiya region still continues. More than 500 people are ready to take water baptism in the month of March this year.

New facility of Training center in Nazareth/Adama
We have started Leadership and mission trainings in our new training facility in Nazareth/Adama/. More than 100 leaders and local missionaries and church workers have attended our programs. This program aims to multiply more leaders for the work of God in the central part of Oromiya region in the country. Thousands of people are giving their lives to Christ and hundreds of new churches are being planted in the region every year. So, Discipleship & Training are one of the key tools to accelerate this movement and to have healthy and sustainable churches in the regions.
