Meet Pastor Tadesse

As I was recording these videos in Ethiopia, there were often prayer requests that gave me chills when the men and women asked for them. This church planter’s prayer request was certainly one of those.

Tadesse is a man whom the Lord has been pleased to use to reach 600 people for salvation. Yes, you read that correctly: 600 new souls have their names written in the Lamb’s Book of Life through this humble and faithful servant’s obedience. Amazing. And challenging.

Yet, in spite of this, Tadesse humbly asks for us to pray that the power of the Lord would work through him to proclaim Jesus well and boldly. I believe his magnificent faith is displayed, though, when he says that he wants us to pray for witch doctors to be saved! Audacious prayers! Bold prayers! This man truly knows a good Father (James 1:17) who is equally as powerful as he is kind (Deuteronomy 3:24, Psalm 103:8).

May Tadesse’s requests challenge your own boldness as you approach the throne of grace.
