About Abdi Tadesse-Mulat
Abdi Tadesse-Mulat began ministry as a volunteer leader in his home church. Soon after, a communist revolution swept through Ethiopia. Abdi was arrested and tortured repeatedly. Though no Bibles or prayer were allowed in prison, he witnessed to his fellow prisoners, confirming and refining his faith and his gifts as an evangelist. After his release from prison the government assigned him to Bale, a predominantly Muslim area. Initially resistant to moving to an area with no churches and few Christians, Abdi came to see this placement as an opportunity to share the news of God's love for all people. Abdi now teaches in the Christian-Muslim Relations program at Mekane Yesus Seminary. He is married to Sumaye and they have three children.
Abdi serves in partnership with the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus.
