Arial, sans-serif”>I grew up in traditional Ethiopian Orthodox christian family. I considered myself a “good person”, and I tried to do the “right thing” in dealing with others. but inside of my heart and mind was emptiness and hollowness. One day my friend has told me about Jesus Christ and his death on the cross for my sin.When he gave the invitation for me to accept Jesus Christ as my savior, I knew that I need to be saved, to accept Christ Jesus and that His work was sufficient to assure me of God’s love to assume me of for me and a place of heaven. I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal savior and placed all of my faith in Him and His work and the cross and was baptized.After I accepted Jesus Christ as my savior I got peace, joy and I came to know what it mean to be satisfied. Then I started ministry preaching & teaching God’s word in my local church Through time i gave my full time for ministry and, then I went to Bible school and my local church ordained me a pastor . I have served the lord more than 20 years and by God’s grace I planted many local churches in different parts of the country (Ethiopia ). According to God’s will God brought me and my family(my wife and 4 children) to USA Sep 2016.Now i am serving the lord and I have plane to continue my ministry in USA, because geographical location never stop the minister who called by GOD. I parse and thanks the Lord for His high calling up on me in to the ministry (1tim 1;12). pray for me to be effective minister in USA.
