Gudina Tumsa, general secretary of the Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane
Yesus (EECMY) from 1966 to 1979, was a recent martyr in the history of the
Christian church. He believed in the liberating power of the gospel, preached it
from the pulpit, witnessed to it in the assemblies of the churches, and challenged the international community to respond to the need of his church. His contemporary, Rev. Dr. Tasgara Hirpho chronicles the extra ordinary life and legacy of the late Rev. Gudina Tumsa.
