So he got up and went. There he met an Ethiopian eunuch, a court official of Candace, queen of the Ethiopians, who was in charge of all her treasury. He had come to Jerusalem to worship, and was returning home, sitting in his chariot, reading the prophet Isaiah.

Pray for prominent people throughout Africa to seek and find the Lord, and share His ways with others.

Outreach to Muslims in Ethiopia

by KC

What will it take to convince Muslims that Jesus is more than a prophet? Muslims often view Jesus as foreign. It doesn’t have to be that way! When Jesus is presented to Muslims in a way that they can embrace Him using their own cultural ways, doors often open to the King of kings. Here are excerpts from a prayer letter regarding what is now happening in Ethiopia.
“We found the group of mostly young men sitting on the floor of a home where they were being discipled in their new faith. Among them were a couple of imams (Muslim religious leaders). Separately a group of women met. In another place there was a group of Muslim clerics. All were receiving training in Jesus’ Word and ways. They haven’t left their culture and become “Christians,” which would shut the movement down in a heartbeat, and bring on persecution, but they are quietly leading their friends and families to meet their Savior. The groups of new believers are multiplying. Scores of clerics have placed their faith in Jesus, and many will follow. When the movement is large enough to withstand persecution, they plan on going public. We heard testimonies and prayed with them and then left for the eight-hour journey back. It was worth it!”

Pray for the Holy Spirit to move among these Ethiopian Muslims for many years to come. Pray for these Muslims to put Jesus Christ first, and not allow for spiritual distractions.
