GOOD NEWS TO HARD PLACES

Ethiopia is one of Africa’s oldest independent nations. Predominantly an agricultural country, more than 80% of Ethiopia’s 105 million residents live in rural areas. Continued rapid population growth is straining land resources and raising vulnerability to food shortages.

Communities where He is least known

Animistic Peoples

Many animistic pastoralists live in the lowlands, along the southern borders with Kenya and Southern Sudan. We hope to see a wave of disciple-making movements that will influence multiple peoples and flow over the borders to other related people groups.

 

Muslim Peoples

Thirty-four percent of the population of Ethiopia are Muslim peoples needing to hear the good news of the gospel of Christ: Somali, Afar, Argoba, Arsi, and other Oromo groups, Guragae, Kereyu, Borana, Silti, and others.

 

Urban Communities

The people of Ethiopia are increasingly urban, educated, middle class, young, and connected to the electronic world. At the same time, poverty continues to be a major issue. The urban population has increased to around 20 percent in this primarily rural country, and the rate of change is increasing.
