Dr. Eyasu Ferenj

Dr. Eyasu Malsamo is the head of church planting for the largest evangelical denomination in Ethiopia, Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church (EKHC). There are over 8,000 churches in the EKHC, representing 8 million people across Ethiopia. Dr. Eyasu received his Doctorate of Missiology from Western Seminary under Dr. Gerry Breshears.

In his book “You Will Be My Witnesses,” Dr. Eyasu Ferenj has presented brief yet detailed information on topics like evangelism and an evangelist, the ministry of contextualization in light of the whole Scripture, and involving the whole congregation to evangelism. The book is highly theological, biblical, and practical. It offers proven illustrations beyond mere theories. This breakthrough book is unique, and I tell you without any exaggeration, that I have never read a book that was authored in my country discussing these topics.

Thus, it would be beneficial for theological institutions to use this book as a manual for evangelism and related courses. Every Christian should read this book. I especially recommend this book for church leaders, for missionaries, for evangelists, for pastors, for teachers, and for anyone who has a passion to spread the gospel.

Dear Ethiopian Pastor in the U.S.,

I would like to send you a free copy of this book as a gift. I hope you will use this Amharic translation of You Will Be My Witnesses to spread the Good News of Jesus. With much love and prayers to support.

O Father God, in Jesus’ name, I thank you for giving us a godly leader for your church. You are always concerned about your people even for Israel in the past and for the church today.

I pray, O Lord, for my pastor that you continue to guide him in his ministry so that he would be a fruitful servant.

I pray, O Lord, for the protection of his health and his life from the snare of the devil. I also pray, O Lord, for his family that you would keep them healthy, peaceful, and protected from any devilish attacks that cause disunity within the family. I pray, O Lord, for his congregation’s physical and spiritual protection. I also pray, O Lord, for his congregation to be kept from any temptations.

I ask You, O Lord, to fill my pastor with the power of the Holy Spirit so that he would be empowered to be a witness for You to the unbelievers around him in the region at large and to make disciples according to Matthew 28:18-20.

O Lord thank you, for you are faithful to do all this for your glory and for the expansion of your kingdom. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
