Jesus saved me on a trip to Africa in 2005, and since then I have had the opportunity to visit the continent a dozen times. Early on in my travels, I was privileged to meet Werku Golle from Dilla, Ethiopia. His story of God’s grace is amazing. In the late 80s and 90s, he and his church elders were put in jail by the Communist government during its efforts to kill the church in Ethiopia. Today, God has seen fit to bear much fruit in Ethiopia through his faith. There is now a Bible college, literally thousands of churches, and many lives deeply affected by Werku’s love and faith in Jesus.
Here is a wonderful video which was taken during one of my visits to Ethiopia.
Thank you, Jesus, for all that you have done in and through Werku Golle. What an amazing testimony of your love and faithfulness! Please continue to bless his ministry for your glory in Ethiopia and beyond!
