Update: Widow of slain evangelist progresses toward self-sufficiency on the road to recovery from tragic loss

On the morning of October 11, 2006, Meskele Dhaba and her children witnessed the brutal murder of their husband and father, Michael—an Ethiopian evangelist. Muslim extremists tried to force Michael to convert to Islam, but when he refused, they murdered him with a machete.  Since that time, Open Doors has been working to encourage the devastated family left behind and help them work toward self-sufficiency. The following is an update from our staff members who had the privilege of visiting Meskele and her family in April and seeing the progress that they’ve made:

While visiting Meskele, our staff saw some of the encouragement cards we had delivered on a previous visit.  They were all grouped together on a wall in her house, a constant reminder to her that she is not alone on her journey of faith.

We praise God for the update that Meskele shared with us about starting her own catering business and how we were able to help. In addition, Open Doors has been providing support for Meskele to build a new home for their family.  Please lift Meskele and her family up in your prayers and consider sending them a letter to let them know that you are praying for them.

For more information on how you can send a letter of encouragement to Meskele, or other families that have been affected by persecution, please visit our website.

Please Pray:

  • For Meskele and her children to continue to receive God’s love and encouragement. (2 Corinthians 13:11)
  • For the Muslim attackers to see God’s love first hand by the witness of Meskele and her family. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
  • For Meskele’s story to be shared worldwide so that her testimony help open hearts that were once closed, open their eyes that were once blind, and open minds that were once filled with deception and lies. (Mark 10:27)

The attackers came without warning and without mercy.

The Christians of Nensebo Chebi, in remote southern Ethiopia, had gathered as usual for their morning worship services on Sunday, March 2nd. But their praises were cut short when Muslim extremists stormed the village’s two churches.

Tamirat WoldeGorgis Ethiopia

“God have your forsaken me?” Tamirat asked. Sharing a 13×13 foot cell with 40 other inmates; the human stench was over powering. Bodies were everywhere. Inmates had to take turns to simply lie down. Even in such tight quarters, he never felt so alone.
