Our modern-day presence in Ethiopia began in 1972. We took up ministry in two regions – Borana Zone of Oromiya Region and Gamo Gofa and South Omo Zones of the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples Region.
In Borana land a primary evangelization program, which made every effort to respect the local religious and social attitudes of the Borana people, is developed. We introduced the Gospel through the channels of dialogue that showed respect for the Borana culture. Education is an integral part of our ministry. We run three primary schools as well as two boys and girls hostels in Yabello and Dubluq for secondary school students. Boranaland is part of Vicariate of Hawassa.
