Association in Mekelle, to help reach Tigrinian speaking people with the gospel and love of Christ.
Our outreach includes:

–A daily shortwave gospel broadcast in Tigrinya to Ethiopia and Eritrea.
–Distributing Bibles to prisons and refugee camps in Ethiopia and Sudan.
–Supporting the biblical training of over 100,000 orthodox priests in Tigray.
Our goals include:
1. Raise up 600 sponsors at $100/month for the Kale Hiwot Church in Shire’s Feed the 600 Children program led by Pastor Temesgen.
2. Print and distribute 50,000 Tigrinya language Bibles to prisons, refugee camps, and orthodox priests ($10-12 per Bible).
