From Outcast to Evangelist, An Ethiopian's Story


Tariku Fufa was a 13-year-old asthmatic boy when his father evicted him from the house for becoming a Christian.

Forced to live on the streets of Addis Ababa, Tariku never gave up hope that God had a greater plan for his life.

Eventually, the Ethiopian Christian took the Gospel message from his homeland to Zimbabwe.

As an evangelist, he now believes God wants him to help send African missionaries around the world.

CBN News Senior International Reporter Gary Lane spoke with Fufa to hear his amazing story of love, forgiveness, and purpose, on Christian World News, Aug. 16. Click play to watch his story.
