A word from Mekebib Desta…
     “Since the church is financially poor, we have big problems of training center, church structure in many church plant areas for worship programs and support for church planters when they travel from place to place. 
     We have big vision to reach our people. Most of our pastors are traveling from place to place to reach Ethiopia with the gospel of Christ with no payment and some with very minimal support. We need who ever has kingdom mind to support us in church planting process by training our church planter pastors, when we plant churches by helping us to build church structures and supporting church planters for certain period of time. 
     ​Be blessed”
