The call of God that I accepted 48 years ago still burns in my heart. I continue to preach the Gospel, to train and equip emerging leaders, and to encourage the Body of Christ to fulfill the mandate of the Gospel.
This year, to date, we have ministered in Egypt, Ethiopia, the United Kingdom, and the United States. We have witnessed the powerful work of Christ—salvation, deliverance, and restoration—and we have equipped the Body of Christ for the work of the gospel.

God's Still Faithful Thru the Pandemic
Dear Partner in the Gospel,
It has been a year since COVID-19 changed our world, and we are already two months into 2021. Time is moving fast, and there is much to do in God’s kingdom. In spite of how COVID has changed our way of life, we can still fellowship with our Father through prayer (the core of our prayers begin with “Our Father”)—and we can still grow in fellowship with each other through prayer, as well. Prayer unites us with the Father and with the body of Christ.
As we have spent more time at home, it has been an opportunity to rebuild our personal and home altars to host God’s presence. Remember Obed-Edom who kept the Ark of the Covenant in his home? The Word says, “The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the Lord blessed his household and everything he had.” (1Chronicles 13:14). This has been my prayer for our partners in the gospel.
Gospel of Glory began 2021 with three weeks of intense, organized prayer in Ethiopia and the United States. Following that, we held a four-day Glory Gathering annual conference to hear the voice of the Lord both at a ministry and nation level. The Lord brought us very clear revelation with strategic direction through Apostle Chuck Pierce, Prophet Cindy Jacobs and Dr. Don Crum, for which we are so thankful.
After receiving clear direction, we intensified our ongoing fasting prayer for the work of God and for the nations. We conducted a four-week marriage retreat to reignite the altar fire in order to restore and build altar worship in homes. At the same time, we focused on equipping emerging leaders for the coming kingdom harvest through leadership training. Last Saturday we completed the second biblical leadership course in Amharic with 43 leaders from around the world. We will offer the second part of the course in April.
We have continued ministering regularly to the Body of Christ via Zoom both in Ethiopia and the U.S. We also have stayed connected with Emerging Leaders Accountability Network via Zoom for leadership input, encouragement, sharing and prayer. The Lord has given us open doors to train, equip, engage and teach His people. Thank you for your faithful support in prayer and giving.
You have been a faithful partner to this ministry. I ask you to continue to join us in ministry and stand with us as we move forward in these urgent and challenging times. Your prayers and financial support are vital to this kingdom work. Thank you!

FOR GOSPEL OF GLORY
Chuck Pierce presented me with this beautiful ministry mantle.
Gospel of Glory has truly entered into a new season in 2020. As you may know, I celebrated 50 years of ministry during the weekend of January 31-February 2.
I want to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting us with your love, prayers and financial partnership. There is no way that I could have made it to this milestone in my life without you. You go with me into every nation where I travel and help me be the hands and feet of Christ.
The weekend was glorious, and the presence of God was tangible in every meeting. But it was not just a time of looking back. It was a time of looking to the future and hearing what God has planned for this ministry. The Lord has shown us that 2020 is a year of redefining, realigning, recompense, restoring power, and resetting our future. At the celebration, I was blessed to be recommissioned by Apostle Chuck Pierce, Dr. Don Crum, and my spiritual sons. The Lord gave me a special mandate for this era of ministry.
Chuck Pierce’s and Cindy Jacob’s prophetic words, which are excerpted below, highlight my calling for this era.
Chuck Pierce presented me with this beautiful ministry mantle. He said, in part, “[This is] a mantle representing new wine and representing building the future. The Lord says, ‘You are being dressed in a way that only I could dress you. I am shifting you. You are not going to be teaching and making people understand. You are going to be imparting knowledge and strategies that change the course of cities and nations. You are going to be moving in ways that you never would have thought you would have moved.’ . . . The Lord says, ‘You will rally people throughout nations, but you will also blend those people and their favor into key apostolic leadership of nations. Get ready. I have just extended your call. You will build the future and you will build with power and you will build with understanding, but you will build with revelation. So, I say to you, go before, favored, for a new era has now begun in your life.’”
Cindy Jacobs spoke this prophecy: “Alemu, at your heart you’re a revivalist; at your heart you want to see souls saved. The Lord says, ‘I am getting ready to open doors for you.’ I see you doing some major outdoor meetings. The Lord says, ‘If you will plan for them even in your own country’—and I know it’s like your Nazareth, in Ethiopia—the Lord says, ‘I am going to give you miracles that you will hardly be able to believe.’ The Lord says it’s not just going to affect Ethiopia and Eritrea. It’s going to affect Uganda; it’s going to affect Kenya. The Lord says that East Africa revival is getting ready to break out again and He says, ‘I am going to use you in a great way for that revival.’
500 Saved at a Youth Conference
I returned last week from four weeks of ministry with great joy in what the Lord did in six cities, three countries and two continents. During these ministry trips, a verse that came to my mind often was the people’s response to Jesus’s ministry—“He has done everything well.” Mark 7:37 This was true of this ministry trip.
My ministry included speaking to small groups, addressing large gatherings, conducting leadership training workshops, providing consultation on curriculum design and ministry strategies, establishing divine order in local church settings, facilitating reconciliation among ministry leaders, ministering at local church services, and hosting a live webcast.
Since I stepped into full time ministry almost 50 years ago, one of my personal cries and burdens has been for the full manifestation of the glory of the Lord (that is why the Lord led us to name this ministry Gospel of Glory twenty- eight years ago) and for the generations. My life verse has been Now when David served God’s purpose in his own generation (Acts 13:36).
The highlight of this trip was ministering to 3,000 youth in Semarang, Indonesia. These young people came from different government schools with permission to attend. After I spoke and gave an invitation, more than 500 accepted the Lord Jesus Christ. To see them running forward was my greatest joy in 50 years of ministry. I felt as if the Lord said to me, “I have heard your cry for the generations.”
Others came forward for prayer, deliverance and freedom believing that there is power in the Holy Spirit to give victory. You can imagine the feeling I experienced and the tears of joy I shed back in my hotel room. Whenever I look at the pictures I’m sharing with you, I am again overcome with great joy. Praise the Lord with us as you look at what the Lord Jesus had done in the lives of hundreds of young people.
When I see this, I think of the word of the Lord Jesus, the great Savior and deliverer, in Luke 4:18-19, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor, he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”
Another driving force of Gospel of Glory’s ministry is equipping Christian leadership for greater impact in the kingdom of God. The Lord gave an opportunity on this trip to minister to many Christian leaders. The highlight of my time with 1,100 pastors and leaders was to talk to them about “Discipling Kingdom Leaders.”
A Discipling Community From Believers To Disciples Conference
Again, I praise the Lord for His great mercy and opportunity He has given us to serve Him and advance His kingdom in strategic regions of the world. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your partnership both in prayer and financial support.
Please join us in your prayers and financial support for my upcoming mission trip to Egypt, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Brazil and the United Kingdom. One of the small churches in Cairo has been waiting for us to commission a pastor we have been preparing. The only thing that is hindering us is provision for the airline ticket, lodging and food for five days. Would you ask the Lord about sending us on these important trips to advance the kingdom work? Please join me in this great last day harvest.
