God has chosen now as the time for Ethiopia

“I don’t know how to explain this other than that God has chosen now as the time for Ethiopia to receive him.

The things we see and the stories we hear seem to be straight out of the book of Acts.”

One year ago, Seth was a senior at the University of Arkansas. He and a friend had committed to going on STINT to Ethiopia but they had no team, no women committed to go. God worked in incredible ways to raise up 3 women to go with them.

Seth sent us this audio last week and we added pictures (actually Michael Allen, our intern video guru) and showed it at our weekly meeting. 4 guys came up after Cru desiring to go to Ethiopia on summer project.

I’d encourage you to watch and be encouraged by how God is moving in Ethiopia (and pray for him to do the same across Africa).

Some great quotes from this 3 minute video:

  • 25 years ago Ethiopia was a closed, Communist nation. Christianity was illegal.
  • Now Ethiopia is open to the gospel and it is spreading like an unquenchable fire.
  • The harvest is plentiful and the laborers, well, not so much.
  • You can be one of these laborers.
  • Consider coming on STINT when you graduate.
  • Please come and help us

    Beautiful … I agree now is the time for Ethiopia! It’s a new day! I have been there twice in the last two years and will be returning this summer working with the women! The people are amazing, the country is beautiful, the history is rich ~ your life will never be the same! God Bless you STINT teams for the work you are doing all over the world!

    what do you mean 25 years ago Christianity was illegal in Ethiopia? Ethiopia have been a christian nation since the 4th century.

      Ethiopia was communist from 1974-1991 and Christians were forced “underground”.
