Everything starts with a step, as for us in Nyangatom Mission we are starting a new beginning… to open the road to our future new Mission in naturomoe hill, Nyangatom (South of Ethiopia). As we opened our way through thorns and bushes, breaking rocks and removing boulders, we remembered that our life and mission is also full of thorns, and stones, which apparently block us from achieving our dreams, but that in reality make us stronger if we persevere through those obstacles.
As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet: “A voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him. Every valley shall be filled in, every mountain and hill made low. The crooked roads shall become straight, the rough ways smooth. And all people will see God’s salvation.'” – Luke 3:4-6
