Acts 3:19-20, NET
Therefore repent and turn back so that your sins may be wiped out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and so that he may send the Messiah appointed for you--that is, Jesus.

Pray that African missionaries will never forget that repentance is at the core of the gospel. Pray that repentance will be preached far and wide among the unreached peoples.

Horn of Africa Evangelical Mission

by PD

(This story summarizes what this organization is doing.)
Dawit, a Christian missionary with the Horn of Africa Evangelical Mission was writing a response to a missionary friend in the U.S. “You wanted to know more about my work. Although I cannot give you detailed information I can say this. The mission agency I have been serving with for the past 12 years was birthed out of a Perspectives class in 2002 by Dr. Zemede of Ethiopia. Originally the mission was named Horn of Africa Mission and then we founded Horn of Africa Evangelical Mission here in Ethiopia. God gave us the vision of planting thousands of churches to reach out to the unreached people groups (UPGs) in the Horn of Africa—Ethiopia, Somalia, Djibouti, Eritrea, but also including Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania and other East Africa countries. Since then the mission has been committed to working among 28 plus UPGs in the region. Praise to the Lord, more than 11,000 churches have been planted among those people groups throughout the past 12 years! Currently, the mission is focused on reaching the remaining UPGs in Ethiopia by 2020.” Join us in praying through Dawit’s prayer requests.

Pray that the unreached Somali people groups both in Ethiopia and Somalia will embrace the gospel. Many are very resistant to outreach. Pray that they will find openness among these unreached people groups: Hammar-Banna, Tsemay, Dasenech, and Karo. Also pray for the church planting movements among the people of Amhara and Agew who reside Ethiopia’s northern and northwestern regions.
