Verse of the Day
As a mustard seed. There will be many who will be added in to the Kingdom
Grace Ethiopian Evangelical Church in Athens was started in 1985 E.C as a fellowship in a house by not more than 10 young Christian brothers and sisters who came from Ethiopia. these Christians left their hometown and country because of the situation back then in the homeland, which was very problematic due to the Derg Communist regime There was too much suffering and persecution, so these Christians left with one thing in mind and that was to reach in the northern part of America where they can worship the Lord in freedom and also further their studies.
