Even though there is severe persecution in Ethiopia, Christians in this country suffer in silence. Persecution due to the rise in Islamic extremism affects all types of Christianity and also pressure from government and tribal leaders has made the lives of Christians difficult.
In spite of this Christians continue to testify of Jesus. What a privilege to support them with Bible materials they so desperately need. Many leaders are now using Derek’s Amharic materials in their churches and Bible schools. The believers grow from his teaching and become effective in the Lord’s service.
