Day 5 – With Alaba Church

My friend Danny (“learning…“) and I will be joining Dave and BeckLynn Black in Ethiopia for two weeks. I will not be able to post updates while I’m in Ethiopia, so I’m publishing these posts to keep you updated on our plans. We would appreciate your prayers.

This is Sunday, and it is our first full day in Alaba. Also, Danny and I will each be speaking to different churches around the Alaba area.

I plan to teach from Hebrews 10:19-25. It is one of my favorite passages of Scripture, and I think it is very appropriate for the people in this area of Ethiopia who are facing many physical and spiritual struggles. They are also facing persecution from their neighbors.

Please pray that we will be able to communicate clearly. Also pray that we will be willing to learn from the brothers and sisters that we meet.
