Silt'e in Ethiopia


Silt'e in Ethiopia

A considerable number of Silt'e live in Addis Ababa, Adama and other cities and smaller urban centers of southern Ethiopia where they make a living as merchants or shopkeepers. They also have their own administrative unit, the Silt'e Zone. In the countryside, the Silt'e practice mixed farming and cultivate ensete, a native flowering plant found in Africa and Asia. Almost all Silt'e are Muslim.

Ministry Obstacles

One can expect spiritual opposition when Jesus is presented to a people who regard Christ as foreign and threatening. Workers should be prepared for this by being constant in prayer for the people to have spiritual understanding.

Outreach Ideas

There are wonderful opportunities to show the love of Christ to the Silt'e people, especially in areas of health and education. Missionaries can also begin soccer ministries that can open doors.

Scripture Focus

"From the rising of the sun to its setting, the name of the LORD is to be praised! The LORD is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens!"  Psalm 113:3-4

Scripture Prayer

Pray for peoples from all over the world to discover His glory and mercy.
