KOM stands for Konta, Oyda, and Melo. These three people groups live in remote areas of Ethiopia, but God’s Word in their languages is demonstrating that they’re not forgotten. The Melo New Testament is the first written document of any kind in the Melo language!
“Christians have been persecuted in Ethiopia for most of my lifetime,” a local church leader said. “Now, to have this dedication in a government building and to preach the gospel here is a miracle.”
An Oyda translator remarked, “In the book of Revelation, we see how God calls people from different races, tribes, and cultures in their own language. Among these tribes is the Oyda. We are now among the ones God has called.”
