This incredible prayer movement was started on Mount Ambaricho, the tallest mountain in southern Ethiopia where a renowned witch doctor, Abba Sarecho, whose family was worshipped there for over 700 years, became a Christian. Tens of thousands of people once gathered every year to worship the witch doctor and his family line. Amazingly, after the continued pursuit of faithful Christians through prayer and the power of the gospel, the 22nd of the Abba Sarecho dynasty became a follower of Jesus Christ. The very place where he was worshipped became the place of this prayer and missionary sending movement. Today, by God’s grace, over 100,000 Christians gather every January 19th on the top of this mountain to pray for world evangelization.


AIPM is grateful for the many partners it has around the world. You can partner with us by becoming a prayer partner or by supporting the mission financially. We are looking for churches and individuals who are faithful followers of Christ that have a heart for missions and are willing to commit to supporting our missionaries as they spread the good news of Christ in Ethiopia and beyond.
