Trips to Africa
Amhara, Ethiopia - ET20B
Apr 7-18, 2020
Positioned in the horn of Africa, Ethiopia is one of the continent’s oldest independent nations. It experiences both fertile, mountainous plateaus and drought-prone lowlands. It is most famously known as the birthplace of coffee.
After decades of suffering under communist rule, the Church has forged an unrelenting love for the Gospel and one another. This has laid the groundwork for a strong missionary presence. Still, over 20 million people have never heard the Gospel.
The Amhara region is home to the Amhara people and one of 9 ethnic zones across the country. Globally, there are over 28 million Amhara people, the vast majority of which remain unreached with the gospel message.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
This expedition is a unique opportunity to reach the Amhara people with the story of Jesus. We are working with a series of churches who have a passion for reaching their neighbors and communities.
In addition to taking the gospel to the streets, we will also warn these beautiful people about the dangers of human trafficking in their villages. As people give their lives over to Jesus, they will be connected with local pastors who will establish new small groups and churches, ensuring a lasting impact in the region.
