ETHIOPIA: A Pastor Despite Severe Persecution Continues To Serve Christ


“World Serve Ministries works with five organizations in Ethiopia. Wilfred Unrau of World Serve Ministries says, “Ethiopia is a fascinating country. It’s actually the only country in Africa that was not colonized, and it has a number of connections with our Bible.”

Wilfred shares an amazing faith story saying “I met a pastor that took us to his church, and we had an amazing worship service…so lively.” Unrau explains that he can’t reveal the man’s name because he is under persecution.

He goes on to reveal that, 13 years ago, this man closed down his two night clubs after someone approached him and told him about the fulfilment of living in Christ. The next year he became a pastor and has since planted three churches. And if you count the church he planted in prison, its four churches. What’s more, this man has been imprisoned for his faith eight times over the last 12 years.
