Ethiopia is a primarily English-speaking country located in East Africa. More than 60% of the population is Christian, with 30% being Muslim. Ethiopia is the oldest independent country in Africa and one of the oldest in the world. Christianity has been present since the 4th century, and there are many denominations living and working side-by-side today. Christian persecution under a Marxist regime during 1974-1991 has fostered unity among the Christians that continues to this day. The years of political turmoil, along with droughts and famines, have left Ethiopia as one of the poorest African nations, with many people starving and two-thirds of the population illiterate. The government has implemented programs to improve agricultural practices, encourage economic change, and accept food aid. Missions are an important part of Ethiopian Christians’ focus, and the goal is to make more churches “mission-mobilized.” We are collaborating with Seblewengel Daniel and Tamiru Zeleke.
