Teddy's Story

This year’s offering recipient is Teddy Bezabih. Teddy was born in Ethiopia and raised in the Coptic Orthodox church, but after the Holy Spirit convicted him, he gave his life to Christ and began a movement to reform the national church. By the grace of God—despite being thrown in prison for multiple days—Teddy reached the people around him for Christ, planting three churches and discipling seven pastors.

In 2013, Teddy moved to the U.S. to reunite with his family, who had earlier immigrated to Virginia. After attending seminary in St. Louis, Teddy got connected with the EFCA, and God called him to Clarkston, Georgia—a small neighborhood just outside of Atlanta populated by immigrants and refugees from all around the world. There, Teddy started a wholistic ministry to connect these people—many of whom deal with fear, pain and trauma from past experiences—with physical resources, practical training and the hope of the gospel.

Today, God is transforming the people of Clarkston through Teddy’s ministry, but he needs your help. Because many of these immigrants and refugees fled their home country, they came to the U.S. with little or nothing. Your gifts will help meet basic physical needs for these people and open doors to introduce them to the hope, joy and rest found in Jesus.
