Next, hundreds of people came to Christ in Ethiopia as evangelistic meetings were held along the Sudanese border. Evangelist Sammy Tippit says as many as 100-thousand people heard the Gospel and more than 65-hundred people came to Christ. Tippit says many of them were Sudanese. “There were 2,000 people from that border region who came for the sole propose of coming to the evangelistic meetings. Many of them came to know Christ. The exciting thing about that is these people spill back over into Sudan where you can not have evangelistic meetings and they can take the Gospel that they’ve heard and received back into Sudan.” Camera crews taped the meetings and Tippit says they hope to translate it into different languages. “So, we are going to lay this down and then we’re going to provide to the believers the video of the crusades so that they can have videos all in these villages all throughout this whole region. We’ll be able to impact all of Africa.” Tippit’s raising 31-thousand dollars for that effort.
