UPCOMING CRUSADE: Dilla, Ethiopia
From 2 – 5 February 2017, our team will be holding our first Gospel Crusade for the year in Dilla, a market town in southern Ethiopia. The most widely spoken language in this area is Amharic, with Ethiopian Orthodox Christianity being the predominant religion together with Islam. According to a 2012 census report, Dilla, which is located on the main road from Addis Ababa to Nairobi, has a population of 79 892. The town became a major transfer and marketing point for coffee in the early 1970s and remains a major center of the coffee trade today.
