A 27-year old man miraculously survived but with deep wounds to the back of his head after a gang of Muslims attacked him on the street while he was preaching the Gospel according to a recent report:
An Ethiopian Christian man suffered deep wounds to the back of his head when he was attacked by a group of local Muslims with machetes while at home alone because he had been evangelizing, according to World Watch Monitor (WWM).
The attack, which took place on July 16 and left the 27-year-old man needing life-saving surgery, occurred in Hirna, a rural town east of the country’s capital, Addis Ababa.
The victim, who cannot be named for security reasons, was referred by his local clinic to the hospital in nearby Asebeteferi which in turn sent him to Adama, where a doctor, believing he would die on the way to a bigger hospital, operated on his wounds. Although he is still unwell according to WWM, the surgery stabilized him and his treatment is continuing.
WWM was told by a source that the gang of Muslims who attacked the man were angry because he had been evangelizing. The gang had first attacked the local Full Gospel Church and partly damaged its roof and a wall before going to the man’s house, WWM reported. (source)
