Endashaw Teshome, South West Bethel Synod Branch Office Suri Literacy Project Coordinator, was shot dead. It is with great sadness to post passing of our beloved brother. He was a hard-worker and worked long years serving Suri community. Surma is one of the remotest areas in Bench Maji zone where Endashaw was sacrificially working to serve the community with compassion. Unfortunately, he lost his life by gun shot while he was traveling to fieldwork. He departed this planet to his everlasting home. We extend our condolences to his entire family.
