Meet Pastor Belay M.

Pastor Belay ministers in the western area of Ethiopia which is very close to the Sudan border. Since December 2013, this area has seen a large influx of refugees from Sudan, many of whom have never heard the gospel.

Pastor Belay has been blessed with the opportunity to proclaim the gospel to 950 people. Of those who have heard, Jesus has saved 23! Pastor Belay has led four of these 23 people through their Christian education/discipleship program and they have been baptized.

Pastor Belay is asking you and me to pray for the non-believers in his town and pray that they will allow him to preach the gospel. Please also pray for the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives and work. Pray that our new brothers and sisters will grow and mature in the Lord.
