My Daughter is Gumuz

March 21, 2010

There are 127 People Groups listed on for Ethiopia and our little Abigail is Gumuz.

As of ten years ago, her people group had less than 60K people.  Only 160K people world wide speak her language. says that her people are primarily Christian-Orthodox, but they do consider their need for evangelism Class One / Last Frontier.

How cool would it be if Abigail returns to Ethiopia one day to share the Gospel with her people?

Maybe our entire family would move there one day to plant a church.

    That would be so awesome. I am certain God is moving in this journey with you. And, we are praying for you to have all you need to bring her home.

    Some days I wonder if you all know what a blessing and inspiration you are in general, but specifically to me and my family. This brightened my day.

    count me in on a move to Ethiopia to plant a church 🙂 I was telling Ash we should learn to say some things in her language! Have you found many resources on that?

    We have a mutual friend – Ryan – and he gave your blog address. We have a daughter who was born in Ethiopia and we live in Memphis. If you’d like to talk sometime let me know!
