South Omo for Christ

by KH

“One People – One Kingdom!” This is the chosen theme of South Omo for Christ. Their mission is to reach unreached tribes using their own language and culture, make disciples, and planting churches. They also want to nurture the few believers through training and prayer so these people can have a godly influence on others in this spiritually dark part of Ethiopia.
South Omo is a highly diversified area in southwestern Ethiopia consisting of 16 ethnic groups. Most of these tribes live without electricity or running water. More than half of the population (573,400 people) practice traditional beliefs. Most of these 16 tribes are unreached, and there are no churches or missionaries in their villages. Cultural and linguistic diversity, unsettled lifestyle of the community, illiteracy, absence of active spiritual movement in the area, and lack of infrastructure are major challenges to reach these desolate people. The tribes are mostly pastoralists, living in remote places.
Current translation efforts include audio Bible stories in nine languages loaded on 600 solar devices. There are 21 local missionaries trained and sent to make disciples.

Pray for these obedient servants, and for the many tribes included in South Omo region to see the light of the gospel through all the confusion of darkness and need. Pray that the truth of God’s Word will break spiritual strongholds.
