In one of the towns we went to record in Ethiopia we were rejected and asked to leave. However we were able to record the GEWADA language in a nearby town of Konso.
In Gidole we were heartily welcomed by the Lutheran Church (Mekanas Yesus). The Priest was kind to us and he assisted by getting some language helpers.
At Erbore one of the elders told us that he had a vision of our coming three days prior to our arrival. He said that he saw birds singing in their language, informing him that missionaries would come in three days time to spread the good news of Jesus Christ and that the message would also influence the neighbouring villages.
We praise the Lord together for fulfilling His word.
