Greetings from Konso,Etiopia
We are doing very fine in the Lord our dearest sisters. Last week we have been in Konso for the mourning of Berhane’s cousin (father’s brother’s son). He is 8 years old and has been sick for the last two years. The sad side is that the child’s parents are not Christians and he has not been baptized. Though Christian faith came to Konso for the last 60 years there are a lots of people who follow traditional belies and sacrifice for the evil spirits. The village has been Christianized some 35 years back but this time most of the people have turned their back to Christian faith. So sad.
Here in our area it is rainy season. Farmers are busy with their farm work. Some sow some are ready for harvest and some are at the middle time waiting for their crop to ripe soon. Everything is green and beautiful to see. But this part of the year is difficult for field work because roads in some of the village get bad because of the rain and vehicles couldn’t ride safely. Mostly we stay in office and be busy with paper works. The Lord is wise and good in arranging this all for the benefit of us.
I have prayer requests for you. As a Bible translation coordinator for my synod I am responsible to find personnel for the translation projects. For the coming year 2016 we are planning to start the Bible translation in one of the pastoralist languages called Hammer. But there is no expatriate missionary personnel who can be advisor for the project. I am making communication with some of the synod partners but no satisfactory response. Please pray for this issue.
Lastly please continue praying for my health as I am planning to resume my studies in this July. I have dropped it because of the illness but I am planning to continue in this semester. I hope His care.
Thank so much and greetings by 2Thess. 2:16,17.
Yours in Christ,
Berhane and Berhanu
