In Never Alone, Bekele Shanko begins with his childhood in the shadow of Ethiopia's Hambaricho Mountain, where his entire community lived in abject material poverty and deep spiritual darkness.
But God began to reveal himself vividly to Bekele's father, and soon thereafter, the entire family experienced the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Even at age 5, Bekele knew that he had been transferred from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of life, and he would never be the same. Bekele's father immediately began preaching the gospel of Jesus, boldly inviting his neighbors to reject their worship of evil spirits and follow the true God.
Bekele himself would end up wearing the same mantle — speaking of Christ to all who would listen.
Follow along as Bekele narrates his journey from an impoverished village to conversations about Christ in classrooms and boardrooms, before presidents and the most ordinary of citizens. Along the way, he weaves in lessons on leadership and the power of partnering in ministry. Indeed, he calls partnership "God's signature on my life."
Throughout his life, Bekele has focused on humbly working alongside fellow believers — tapping into each other's strengths and resources to accomplish daring spiritual goals.
In Never Alone, readers will be challenged to join Bekele in believing God for more than they might have thought possible, yes. But they will also be offered practical principles to follow, thought-provoking questions to ponder and proven strategies to implement.
