ADDIS ABABA, ETHIOPIA

Located on the Horn of Africa, Ethiopia is a diverse and rugged country of mountain ranges and forests, incredible wildlife and ancient ruins. Right in the middle sits the capital, Addis Ababa. Poverty, both economic and spiritual, afflicts many communities in this sprawling city, and though Orthodox Christianity has deep roots in Ethiopia, evangelical churches are few and far between and false teachings of a prosperity gospel are common.


Here in Addis, a dynamic team of MTW missionaries and Ethiopian partners is working to plant churches and serve the poor and vulnerable. Ethiopia ACT, which is staffed in part by MTW missionaries and national partners, addresses healthcare, nutrition, housing, education, and family care in a holistic effort to reduce the impact of poverty and see communities transformed by the power of the gospel. Church planting is foundational to the team’s ministry and vision, and in the slum of Suki, the team has planted a church that is reaching many with the hope of Christ. The team works hard to live out the gospel in both word and deed, preaching to and serving the poor as the hands and feet of their Savior.
