The ancestors of the Gurage people were military conquers from the Aksumite Empire. They originated in the Tigray region. They have subgroups, one of which is the Enneqour.
Most Ethiopian peoples like the Enneqour Gurage people because of their entertaining dances and delicious food. They are known for their hard work, their ability to produce wealth, their willingness to help one another and their clannishness.
Most raise cattle for their milk, which they use to produce cheese and spiced butter. They also grow coffee, chat and ensete as cash crops. Their diet includes wheat, cabbage and dairy products. They eat meat on special occasions. The Enneqour Gurage consider it rude and vulgar to over-eat.
Others are businessmen and traders. They are known for their ability to run prosperous businesses.
Most are Orthodox Christians, but they also have traditional religious practices.
Like most peoples, the Enneqour Gurage need to center their spiritual lives around Jesus Christ and none other.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to transform the Ethiopian Church to center on the person and teachings of Jesus Christ.
Pray for Enneqour Gurage disciplers to make more disciples.
Pray for Enneqour Gurage families to be abundantly blessed by a Christ-centered spiritual transformation.
