Overview

Ethiopia is Africa’s oldest country, and more than 90 languages are spoken there. About 70% of Africa’s mountains are in Ethiopia. Ethiopia is the only African country that has never been colonized. It has the second highest population behind Nigeria, though it is one of the poorest countries on the continent.

It Is Written conducted a mission trip to Ethiopia in 2019 and witnessed supernatural success. More than 1,000 cataract surgeries were conducted by Dr. Jacob with Eyes for India. There were more than 450 baptisms from evangelistic efforts.

Dr. Jacob will be joining the 2022 trip for a massive medical clinic, so several medical professionals of all kinds will be needed.

Pastor John Bradshaw will preach a large city-wide series in Addis Ababa. Wes Peppers, It Is Written’s Evangelism Director, will preach a series in Negele. Three other sites will conduct evangelistic meetings. The potential from all sites combined is at least 500 baptisms.
