Afar - Church Planting Mobilizer/Team Leader

After many decades of work among the two million nomadic Afar people, the response to the gospel has been slow and gradual. However, in the last eight to ten years the doors of opportunity to engage the Afar have opened wider than ever before. Individuals and small fellowships in pockets of the Afar region are reading and listening to the Word of God in their own language. The harvest is ripe and the Lord is reaching the Afar people in a variety of ways, including projects focused on felt needs, creating entry points and bridges for sharing the gospel.
The vastness of the Afar region gives opportunity to expand into new areas with potential new strategies. It is exciting to see God creating a desire among the Afar that is overcoming their suspicion and fear as never before. With doors open wide and vast areas still unreached, we are praying for others to join us as we keep in step with what the Lord is doing among the Afar.
