EHC Ethiopia: Reaching Forgotten Towns and Villages

Ethiopia has long been a poor and weary land but the Gospel is making a difference as EHC teams visit people, home by home.

EHC National Director, Aynalem Haimanot, says, “Using the systematic home by home strategy we reach everyone where they live, even in the dark neighbourhoods and dangerous places, so we don’t miss a single soul.”

Aynalem’s team recently completed an outreach in a town located in the forgotten shadows of the capital city. As the team went to 2,500 homes, 312 people responded to the Gospel. “People received the Good News joyfully,” said Aynalem, “and they read the gospel booklets with great interest! Now there is a great nucleus for a new church to rise up with a vision to continue regular home-to-home outreaches.”


Celelina Sa, a recent convert, was raised by a witchcraft-practicing father and followed in his footsteps. Celelina says, “After hearing the Word of God from your workers I was convinced of my sins and of God’s love for me. I decided to turn my back on all my idolatrous practices and I received Jesus as my Lord and Saviour. Now I am a child of the one true God!”

By God’s grace, EHC is touching millions even in the forgotten shadows of Ethiopia’s larger cities. Teams have visited 4,496,171 homes to date and 1,082,808 people Ethiopia have opened their hearts to Jesus. EHC has also established 20,368 Christ Group fellowships over the years, including 5,213 in the first half of 2013 alone.

When we are willing to take the Gospel to even the darkest places, God shines His great Light and redeems lives.
