SIM in Ethiopia
“The entrance of SIM missionaries into Ethiopia in the 1920s is a story of miracles and heroism. When war erupted in Southern Ethiopia in 1937, the missionaries had to leave 75 new believers. But when the Italian army was driven out in 1941, the missionaries returned to find thousands of new believers. They recognized the great need for discipleship and training, but 90% of the converts were illiterate. This was the foundation of the Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church (EKHC), which today numbers more than 4,300,000 baptized believers in 5,017 congregations. They have their own mission school and missionary outreach, ministries to human needs and development projects, Bible schools, theological colleges, women’s and children’s work, urban ministries program, and a literature publication center.”
