Getachew Tessema was shot to death in Ethiopia in early March 2000. Getachew had just retired from the Ethiopian police force. He had recently become a believer and wanted to serve his newly-found Lord. After receiving training, he joined a traveling JESUS film team as a volunteer. While he was out on his first showing, as the team was setting up their equipment in the dark, a shot rang out. Minutes later he was found on the ground, bleeding to death. In the weeks before his death, Getachew had tried unsuccessfully to share Christ with his wife and six children, ages 8 to 21. They had been adamantly opposed to his joining the JESUS film team. The day after his funeral, his eldest son announced that the entire family wanted to surrender their lives to Christ in honor of their father. (Walt Decker).
