RELIGION/SOCIETY

Christ has set us free for freedom..." 

A convention of combined services by Ethiopian evangelical churches based in Vienna and Budapest was held on February 21-23 at Marek Yosef Youth Hostel in Budapest 14 district MOGYORODI UT 59.

Organised by the Ethiopian Church Budapest, the three-day conference was attended by Ethiopians in Vienna and Budapest and guests that included Hungarians and other nationalities. See pictures after the cut


The aim of the conference, according to one of the founders, is to acknowledge God’s revelation in Christ; to confess the Lord Jesus Christ as God and Saviour according to the Scriptures and, in obedience to God’s will and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Though the sermon was done in Amharic – Ethiopian official language – it seems there was no confusion for Hungarian audience as Tadesse Eyassu (Dr.), one of the founders of Budapest region of the church, did the translation. 

The guest pastor, Berhanu Chernet, presented a sermon titled, “Christ has set us free for freedom: Therefore, stand firm and don’t submit to the bondage of slavery again.”

Pastor Chemet who came all the way from Italy said that the evangelical mission has been growing rapidly for the past fifteen years with about twenty million followers out of the ninety four million population of Ethiopia.

The first of such conference was held in September 2010 at the then African Centre, Wesselényi Street 51 where Mr. Ashenafi Yohannes from Austria officially opened the branch.  

Obviously attendees have doubled from a score who attended the 2010 conference.

Notable personalities at the conference include but not limited to Rediet Ashenafi, the keyboarder who is the daughter of the Pastor in Austria; Gedion Timothewos, a PHD law student at CEU who is to replace the former pastor, Getachew Abichu (Dr) who has since finished his studies and left for Ethiopia.

Mr. Timothewos is expected to lead the Church until August this summer when he too will have completed his studies.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
