Ethiopia tension and thanks

Ethiopia tension and thanks

“As has been the case for a long time, Ethiopia remains fairly tense,” write CMS mission partners Chris and Suzy Wilson. “The situation continues to be very difficult up north and there is lots of conflict in the Oromia region halfway between Addis and Gambella. Please pray for an end to violence, for lasting peace solutions to be found, and for food and medical aid to reach all those who desperately need it.” Chris has been travelling in southwestern Ethiopia and was greatly encouraged to visit a small rural Bible college that is locally-run and locally-funded and has been involved in planting 50 new churches in the last decade. Give thanks for this encouragement.
