Wollo Amhara in Ethiopia: Wallo is a province in north-eastern Ethiopia with a desire for independence. There are around 6.3 million Wollo people who are mostly traditional subsistence farmers. Most Amhara people are Christians but Wollo people practise Islam and traditional religion. Pray for improved farming methods, and for Amharic-speaking Christians to reach out to the Wollo people.
Pray for the work of Global Care in supporting vulnerable women and mothers in Ethiopia. Please pray that the mothers will be equipped to better provide for and protect their children. We pray for all the women in the self-help groups set up by Global Care in Ethiopia and the team helping them. Pray for a willingness to learn, for success in their businesses, support at home and for good peer relationships.
Pray for 100 children at a new preschool in Koshe, launched by mums belonging to a self-help group funded by Global Care. The preschool gives children a basic education locally, so when they are old enough to manage the distance to formal school, they are not too far behind academically to progress. Give thanks for this wonderful outcome of the self-help group programme and pray for more life-changing outcomes to come from the 20 groups spread across the district
Chris and Suzy Wilson are working in reconciliation and peacebuilding with Christian leaders in Ethiopia. Pray for God to bless their efforts to improve their Amharic and help them not just to get to grips with the language’s many consonant sounds and add to their vocabulary, but also for God to bring the right words and turns of phrase to mind when they speak to people.
Pray for a lasting peace agreement and for food and medicine to reach those who urgently need it,” write Chris and Suzy Wilson, CMS mission partners working for forgiveness, reconciliation and peacebuilding in Ethiopia, where the situation continues to be tense. Pray for Christians in the country to be agents of peace and reconciliation as the different parties negotiate and find a way to live together in harmony.
