Geresu, married and a father of four children, is one of the translators working on the Basketo Old Testament in Ethiopia. He came to Christ in 1981 due to his father’s illness. When Geresu saw that his father was healed of his illness after becoming a believer, he decided to also give his life to Christ and follow Jesus. Geresu himself had many life challenges that he desired to be freed from. Christ did that for him.
Geresu has been serving for a long time now as a leader in the Kale Heywet Church in Ethiopia, and was also one of the translators for the Basketo New Testament for the past 15 years. They are now working hard to translate the Old Testament for the well over 90,000 Basketo speakers. Their culture has been adversely affected by years of demon worship and witchcraft and they sorely need the freedom that Christ brings!
