    I had the pleasure of meeting Mr & Mrs H. they were both warm and loving people. I was a CNA that cared for Mr. H. at University Colorado Hospital. Does the book come in english? I would love to read it.

  • Benta Clark says:

    Jesus clearly says that “you will know a tree by it’s fruit”. I have the honor of working with Mr. Tibebu’s oldest daughter Emnet, and I can say without knowing him…He lived a Godly life with an amazing Legacy, which his daughter reflects everyday. I will look forward to the english version of the book, and meeting this amazing man in Heaven.

    • Thank you for your kind words, Benta! You’re not the only one who’s looking forward to the English version! We are too because we’re excited to make this story accessible to a much wider audience.

  • Sam belew says:

    We missed our hero. How do I get the book? Is there available to buy the book online? if so ,would you please send me the link. I checked all the Ethiopian stores here in Dallas, TX.

  • Mulubrhan Lemma says:

    My Dad gave me this book yesterday evening, and I couldn’t stop reading it until 1am, even then I was filled with tears and prayers to the point where I had to stop to absorb the Grace of God that was gripping my heart. I am at work now and I can’t wait till I get home and drink of God’s Spirit that flows from the words on the book. To God be the glory for giving Eteye Lishan the Power and the Will to write a story that points to the Glory of Christ. If I am filled with magnificent of God for just reading the first part, I am wondering what will happen to me at the end of the book. I am praying for multiple translation of this book in the near future.

    • Mulubrhan: I admire my Mom too, for finding the will to write this book in the face of our loss as a family. And yes, we’re hoping for many translations as well so that this book can be available to different audiences, around the world.

  • fetsum kidanne says:

    God has done an amazing work in you all precious family. I feel worthless for the things of God been wasted in the life of most of us! But God is able to change things around for His Glory…”MAY GOD GIVE THE REST OF US” the chance to leave a legacy like your family, that is my prayer today IN JESUS NAME AMEN !!! THANK YOU for your dedications…

    • Amen, Fetsum! May God enable us all to leave behind a godly legacy. But we hope you would only feel encouraged, rather than discouraged or worthless, by the fact that God could use people in such amazing ways!

  • Meseret Asfaw says:

    I just read and finished the book, I couldn’t put it down, I am just praising God and I said ‘Oh Jesus, you have precious children like them’. The book is very touching and I learned a lot from it.
    God bless you

  • Yonas Melese says:

    My friend gave me this book for Ethiopian New Year 2006! What a wonderful gift I have ever got this Year! I just finished it, and thinking about reflection. Yes! I realized that the paragraph which I have read on page 362 talks about it has a FB page for this marvelous book. Before anything else, all the glory and honor be unto the Almighty God! And then, my appreciation goes to Eteye Lishan, you are a hero, and I am proud of you! I have never seen an Ethiopian women writer like you! Please nurture this immaculate gift! In this book I have learnt an amazing lesson from Dr. Tibebu and his family, and it is totally driven by God! If I want to pick a single word from this book “Prayer” is the most, and a repeatedly mentioned word! I wish I, and my generation could have understood the power of prayer like you. “For God is not unjust so as to forget your work and the love you have demonstrated for his name, in having served and continuing to serve the saints. But we passionately want each of you to demonstrate the same eagerness for the fulfillment of your hope until the end.” Hebrews 6:10& 11. In a nutshell, all the tears and amusements pleases our God! This is what just flew out of my heart through my fingers, and it is my prayer and wishes to meet and appreciate in person Dearly Mother Eteye Lishan one day!

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Dear Yonas, I’m sorry for taking so long to respond to your comments but these past few days have been quite busy for me with events following the book tour. I want to thank you so much for your heartwarming comments! And Amen, “all the glory and honor be unto the Almighty God!” I am so touched that young people in your generation are getting the message and desiring to have more of God in their lives. I came to know God when I was a youth, and having experienced the trials and temptations of youth, I’m glad that I was able to communicate the God of my youth to your generation. God bless you!

  • Seblewongel Assefa says:

    I have heared about this Kind of Manof God ,family but when I saw w/ro lishan on Elshaday tv I can’t wait to buy till Monday September 30 . Now I Bought it wow I am proud of Our God . God bless you W/ro Lishan I was praying for you last night i cant Sleep I want to finish .O my God when i pray while i am driving this morning I called My God not only our father Abraham Issac etc But The God of this Lovely family . God Bless you all.

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Bless your heart, Seble! I’m so honored and humbled by your comments. Our God is the God of the living… He is not just our God or the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob but the God of those who are willing to take shelter in him. I’m so glad that you are one of them… Stay blessed as you continue reading the book!

  • Genet Begashaw says:

    I was so amazed by the grace of God how one person’s life can change a family, a community and a generation. The story presents a true Christ like love, which goes beyond, language, culture or race. Moses was a leader and a spokesperson for Israel, likewise Dr Tibebu was a leader and spokesperson for his people. It seems cruel to take a loving husband, a loving father and make him a prisoner in a foreign land, but it was God’s plan. We don’t understand it when it happens but only when we see the finish line. It is all God’s plan. The God who gave His grace to Dr. Tibebu can do the same for us. I cannot even imagine to compare my problems to what I read in this book. Specially in this day and age where everything is instant(quick), this is an eye opener for waiting on the Lord. 11 years in bondage is unimaginable but with God it was possible.

    I encourage everyone to read this book. Are you going through big challenges in your life now? This book will minister to you. Do you feel your prayers are not answered? Read this book.

    Thank you Lishan for sharing your story with us. I thought I knew the story, but reading the book ministered to me. This is not just a book, but a book written with prayer, passion and anointing.
    For those of you who haven’t read Amharic books in a long time, I was one of them, don’t get discouraged, it may take you a little longer, but don’t give up, keep on reading. I really didn’t want to stop reading. Thank you, thank you again for sharing your story.

    I cannot wait to see your next book.

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Thank you Geni for these amazing comments! This is not meant to be a big, scary book about suffering, but a book about the beauty of Christianity and carrying one’s cross. I’m glad I was able to communicate this to my readers. This is a book about victory through suffering, because God was there to comfort us through our suffering. You said it well when you said, “The God who gave His grace to Dr. Tibebu can do the same for us!” I say Amen to that!

  • Abraham says:

    I have read a lot of books but this one is completely unique. The intention of the author (our sister Lishan) is very clear that is just to glorify God. I strongly recommend everybody to read this wonderful book.

  • Dawit says:

    Dear family in Christ

    warmest greeting from Ethiopia I Learn so many thing from man of God what he did for the kingdom of God wonderful book also I have big respect for all the family and to our beloved sister Lishan what she did with Dr Tibebu for God’s His Glory.

    many Blessing

  • Yanjie Ji says:

    HI!

    I am deeply touched by the legacy of Dr. Tibebu.
    I have a question as to if he had received any training in medicine in the States.
    My professor referred him as an “American doctor”. I just want to make sure.

    Thank you and God bless!

      Dear Aynalem, thank you for your humbling comments, but I want you to know that our Heavenly Father who called you & us is mighty & big in you to conquer too! … Even better, to make you more than a conqueror!! The encouraging thing about our calling as children of God is that we do not face our giants alone! We face them with God on our side, who knows no defeat!

    • Hi Aster! The online store is not closed… At the top of the webpage, you just need to scroll your mouse over “Buy the Book” (without clicking) and then click “Store” when it pops up. Our “Buy the Book” page is simply meant to instruct people on using the online store; it also lists the places where people can find our book in the US, Canada, and Ethiopia. Please try ordering again and let me know if you experience any problems.

    Reading this classic book entitled ‘‘Tibebu, Yemedrebedaw Eregna’’ is like drinking water in a desert from an oasis. In the midst of so many self centered books, the value of such Christ focused book is indispensable to our generation. My favorite author, A.W. Tozer, in his book God’s Pursuit of Man wrote the following, as to what the purpose of a good book should be.

    ‘’The function of a good book is to stand like a signpost directing the reader towards the Truth and the Life. The book serves best which early makes itself unnecessary, just as a signpost serves best after it is forgotten.’’

    ‘‘Gash’’ Tibebu, as a signpost for Jesus, has fulfilled his purpose by pointing towards his beloved Lord, Jesus Christ. Even though situations around him prevail to the contrary, by the grace of God, he did it extraordinarily at ‘Denan’ and ‘Hawai’ Prison camps in Somali. He has shown us what almighty God can do for a person whose only ambition in life is to serve as a signpost for Jesus.

    ‘’Eteye’’ Lishen, I wish I could pour everything in my heart after I finished reading your classic book (your classic diary). Your perseverance and honesty in every detail of your life is the greatest tribute to our generation and the generations to come. One thing I would like to suggest is this book need also be prepared in an animated form to reach to children. I don’t think they should wait until they are old enough to read the entire book. Imagine the still small voice of God that speaks to their heart if they are brought up knowing ‘‘Gash’’ Tibebu family’s diary from the scratch.

    Bless you!

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Bless You Mesay! I’m glad to have met you too! Yes, may we serve Him as a sign post & a voice in our time to direct & show people to Him & Him alone! As I think of my husband, who has run the race, finished the course, entered the wide-opened arms of his loving heavenly Father, my heart cries out all the more, to finish the race before me just being that!
      To have this book in an animated form for children is new & Thanks for the suggestion. A movie & audio production have also been suggested. We plan to do the English translation 1st. I believe in His time He`ll make things beautiful.

  • Ephrem Mergia says:

    Hello dear family in Christ. My name is Ephrem Mergia. I am a born again christian. I had the opportunity to hear the late Dr.
    Tibebu’s testimony in Ketena Hulet Mulu wongel church from himself and pastor Merid. At that time I was a teenage and I was very much impressed by his story. I came to know the death of this great man of GOd on last sunday on October 27 2013 when I bought the book written by his wife. In reading this amazing book ,I saw the great, great ……powe, grace, mercy, provision, and comfort
    of our omnipotent God.Surely, it is the story of God and His servants. I give glory to God. Dear families of DR..Tibebu , you should
    really thank God for what He has been doing in your family.Dr. Tibebu has finished his earthly journey by accomplishing his God given mission on earth.This is the key to dying empty. This is what it means to be the light for the world. His life will continue to challenge many generations of Christians to come to live such a Christ-like life. I lack words to express how heart gripping and powerful his story is.Yes, all of us have a special assignment to do on earth that God has prepared before we were born.As to me Dr. Tibebu understood that assignment and executed it by the grace of God. Let his story be an awakening for all
    of us again to know our calling and live for it . His death so glorious! May God bless our sister Lishan.May the light of Christ continue to shine in your family.

    • Hi Ephrem! Your comments are inspiring and refreshing, because they are a reminder of how important it is to live with purpose and clarity. Thank you for the reminder. And we’re glad that you were impacted by the book in such a way!

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Thank you Ephrem. You got it & you’ve said it well brother! Yes, all of us have a special assignment to do on earth. May He help us identify that specific assignment we were created to accomplish, run the race & finish the course! May we continue to lead a purpose driven life which will help us in our determinations & decisions to finish strong!

  • Bahritu S. Wodajo says:

    Dear Sister, Lishan. I want to say thank you and may God bless you abundantly for your effort to reflect this shining star of God so that we also share the blessings. Thank you for taking the initial step to document all the truth, story and inspiration during such a tough time as this. I lived in Nairobi for three years, but after you left, clearly understand what it means to live in Nairobi in such a tiring situation. Not only your loved one, but also you ,Lishan , you are a Heroine. You have waited patiently in the wilderness your Almighty God and you saw his mighty power that you managed to re-shine upon us through your writings. I am reading the book, praising the LORD, researching history, learning resilience through tough times, and also try to understand the situation of the Horn of Africa. Will continue reading and comment once again when finish. Bless you again!! Bahritu from Addis.

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Bahritu yene ehit!
      Thank you for your gracious words, & may He take all the glory & honor! Katherine Kulman, that great woman of God used to say ‘God does not look for golden or silver vessels, but He looks for available vessels” to be available to Him – this has been my prayer & it will continue to be for the rest of my life. The rest will then be to behold the might, the beauty, the wisdom, the leading, the love of our Amazing God! It is beyond recording in our daily journals; it is beyond writing a book… It surpasses all our expressions…

  • Zena slomon says:

    Etya Lish, you are so blessed GOD OF WOMEN, what an amazing story you have been wrote to our generation? men lebale geta keberun yewsdw tekelelo you know etaya Lishe after I read this book I spoke loudly and I said Dr Tibebu is A MAN OF GOD again & again all day long some times cried some times laughed. wow this is fortunate to knew for me this A MAN OF GOD and GOD ‘s communication like Henoke in this century DR akahedun kegzabeher gar yaderg sew neber praise GOD

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Amen Zena! All the glory & honor be to Him & Him alone! I am so humbled that the Lord is showing Himself as a strong & alive, interactive, guiding & loving God… not as a distant non-functional idol!!

      May He continue to take the glory in all this, Genet dear! You know how the word says, “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the Excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” 2Cor 4:7 It is all about Him! His grace, His love, His power, His care… His amazing story in earthen vessels such as our family. It is His story not ours. And you know what? He is still on His throne to show Himself great & mighty in every one of our lives. That is comforting & exciting too!

  • እትዬ ሊሻን በናይሮቢም ሳለን በቤትሽ እንግድነት ትቀበይ ነበር፤ ልጆችሽ ህጻናት ሆነው አስታውሳቸዋለሁ።
    ስለመጽሐፉ አስተያየት ለመጻፍ ብነሳሳም ልናገርው የምፈልገውን ያህል እንደማልናገር ከወዲሁ አውቃለሁ። ለማንኛውም ልቤ የተነካበትን አብይ ቁም ነገሮችን ልናገር!
    1. የመጽሐፉ አጻጻፍ ስልት በአይነቱ እንደ ዳየሪ ነው… ይህም በጣም አንባቢን ወደ ጓዳ አስገብቶ ምስጢርን እንደማዋየት ያህል ያቀርባል። እትዬ ኒሻን መጽሐፉን መጻፍ ስትጀምር በቂ የሆነ ዝግጅትና ጥናት እንዳደረገችበትና ከዶ/ር ጥበቡም የመጀመሪያ ብዙ መረጃ እንደነበራት ያሰረዳል በተለይ የሶማሊያው እስር ቤት ቆይታን በተመለከተ። የመጽሐፉ አጻጻፍ አንባቢ አንዴ ከያዘው መጽሐፉን ቁጭ እንዳያደርገው ተደርጎ በሚጣፍጥ ሁኔታ የተጻፈ ነው። ከአጻጻፉም እንደተመለከትኩት ግነት የሌለበት እውነተኛ መንፈስ ያለበት ምስክርነት ነው። የመጽሐፉ አንባቢ በሚገርም ሁኔት ይህ ቤተሰብ ያለፈበትን ከፍታ፣ዝቅታ፣ጾምና ጸሎት፣ዝምታ፣ትካዜ፣ተስፋና በጌታ ላያ ያለን መታመን ጠጋ ብሎ መመልከት ብቻ ሳይሆን ተካፋይ ወደመሆን እንዲመጣ የሚያደርግ የጸሎት መንፈስ ያለበት መጽሐፍ ነው።
    2. አጻጻፉን ውበት የሰጠው የመጽሐፉ ይዘት በደንብ የተዋቀረና አንባቢ በስነልቦናው ታሪኩን እንዲስል የሚያደርግ የቃላት ሰዕል አለበት። በእትዬ ኒሻን ብዕር ከናዝሬት እስከ ቀብሪድሃር ከዚያም መቋዲሾ አልፎም ብዙ ስዕሎችን በህሊናችን ተስሏል። ጥሩ ብዕር ነው። ከብዙ ዝምታ በኋላ መናገር እንደጀመረ ሰው ከልብ የፈልቁና አንባቢን ልብና ስሜት የሚነኩ እውነቶች በጥሩ መሶብ እንደቀረበ ገበታ በግልጥ ቀርበዋል።
    3. በመጽሐፉ ውስጥ እውነተኛ መንፈሳዊነት ምን እንደሆነ ተመልክቼአለሁ። ጌታን አድምቆ ማሳየትና ራስን ዝቅ ማድረግ ምን ማለት እንደሆነም እጅግ በጥዕሙ መዓዛ ቀርቧል።
    4.ሰው አካሄዱን ከእግዚአብሔር ጋር ቢያስተካክል እግዚአብሔር በርሱና በጠላቶቹ መካከል ሰላምን ያደርጋል ተብሎ እንደተጻፈም ዶ/ር ጥበቡም ሆነ ቤተሰቡ እግዚአብሔር በቤታቸው አንደኛ እንደሆነና በእርሱም የሞገስ መንፈስ በላያቸው ላይ እንደተላበሱ በታሪክ ውስጥ ስውሯ የጌታ እጅ እንደረዳቻቸው እንመለከታለን።
    5.መጽሐፉ በአጭሩ የጻድቅ መንገድ ምን እንደሚመስል ያመለክተናል። በመውጣትና በመውረድ ውስጥ ጌታን እንደሰንደቅ አላማ ማውለብለብ ማለት ይህ ነው።፡”ኑሮ ከጌታ ከኢየሱስ ጋር በሸለቆ ይሁን በተራራ አመቺ ነው ደስ ያሰኛል ርካታን ይስጠል” ብለን ዘምረን የለ? እንዲያ ነው! በተለይ ለአዲሱ ትውልድ ክርስቶስን መኖርን አስተምሮአል! ጌታ ይባርካችሁ!
    6. በቤተ ክርስቲያናችን ብዙ መጽሐፍት መጥተው እባችሁ ብለን ማስታወቂያ ተናግረን ውጤት ስላላገኘን “የኛ ሰው መጽሐፍን ማንበብ አይወድድም” ደምድመን ነበር፤ አሁን ግን ለካ ህዝባችን የሚነበብ በተለይ ከህይወት ጋር የተዛመደን ነገር ያነብብ ኖሮአል። መጽሐፉ በአጭር ጊዜ ተሸጦ ማለቁ ደስ አለኝ፤ ለምን የማገልግለው ጉባኤ ስለመጽሐፉ መወያየትና መነጋገር ከጀመረ ሰንበቷል።
    7 መጽሐፉ ያለው ታሪካዊ ይዘት ማለት ለክርስቲያን ኮሚውኒውቲ ብቻ ሳይሆን ለሌላውም የሶማሌና የኢትዮጵያ ጦርነት እንዴት እንደነበር ታሪካዊ ሰነድ ነው። አንድ አማኝ ወንድማችንም የዚህን ክፉ የአገራችን ጨለማ ጊዚ ውስጥ ለምርኮኞች ብርሃን ሆኖ ብዙዎችን በጽድቅ ኑሮና በፍቅር ለክርስቶስ መማመረክ እጅግ እግዚአብሔርን የሚያስከብር ታሪክ ነው።
    8. መጽሐፉ ስለክርስቲያን ቤተሰብ ምንነት ያስተምራል፤ተጠቃሚ ሆኛለሁ። የባልና ሚስት ፍቅር እና መደጋጋፍ በደስታም በሃዘንም የሚለው እውነት በግልጥ ይታይበታል።

    አሁንም እግዚአብሔር በምህረቱና በጸጋው በመልካምነቱ ይደግፋችሁ!

      ውድ ፓስተር አስፋው! ከራስህ እይታና ግምገማ አንጻር ስለ መጽሐፉ የሰጠኸው ሰፊ ትንተና ድንቅ ነው፤ እጅግ አመሰግናለሁ፤ ተባረክ ወንድሜ፡፡ እንዲህ እንዳንተና እንደጥቂቶቹ በዚህ ድህረ ገጽ ላይ አልገለጹትም እንጂ፣ መጽሐፉን ካነበቡት ሰዎች በአካልም ሆነ በስልክ ሲያገኙኝ የሚነግሩኝ በጣም ተመሳሳይ ነገር ነው፡፡ ይህን ድንቅ የእግዚአብሔር ሰው በሞት የተነጠቅሁ በመሰለበት በዓመት ጊዜ ውስጥ በአምላኬ ፊት ያሳለፍኳቸው እንቅልፍ አልባ ሌሊቶቼና የፈሰሱት እንባዎቼ ይህን መጽሐፍ አስገኝተዋልና ልቤ በመጽናናት ይሞላል፡፡ ክብሩን ሁሉ ምስጋናውንም ሁሉ ጠቅልዬ ይህን ታሪክ በታናናሽ ሰዎች በሰራው አምላኬ ዙፋን ስር አስቀምጣለሁ፡፡ ወገኖች ይህን መጸሐፍ አንብበው እንዲጠቀሙ የታሪኩን ባለቤት ጌታ እግዚአብሔርን፣ አሰራሩን ታማኝነቱን ፍቅሩንና የጸጋውን ጥልቀት ተረድተው ወደዚህ ድንቅ ጌታ የበለጠ እንዲጠጋጉ፣ ወደበለጠ ጽናትና የጸሎት ሕይወት እንዲወስዳቸው አሁንም ጸሎቴ ነው፡፡

Our years of assignment in Maseru, Lesotho, had a unique divine appointment to meet precious young people like you!! That great man of God has gone to be with the Lord, to love & worship Him forever & ever. That was what he loved to do most & he is having it non-stop… I can’t believe he’s gone, but I’m comforted he is in a glorious place enjoying the unhindered presence of our glorious God!

    I used to live in Kenya as refugee during 90’s to 2006 year. I didn’t know this family but I heard many touching storeis from Yared Gedam about Dr Tibebu’s Family. Dr Tibebu was truly man of GOD. The book is full of wonderful testimony how might hand of God with Dr Tibebu in the midst of trails and challenges. What a Book!!!!!!!
    Thank you Lishan. GOD bless you and you family abundantly

      Thank you brother Daniel, for sharing your thoughts! What a Mighty God we serve!!!! What made this book so impacting is really the tangible presence & guidance of God in our life… It is Him who made the story so touching. Whenever He comes into ordinary people’s life such as ours, He does the extraordinary!

  • Samuel Mekonnen says:

    Fabulous book, it looks like a book of Acts in the Bible, a book of prayer, guidance, commitment, devotion…
    It challenges my way of life in Christ. I hope it touches many hearts of my generation… I strongly recommend it to the youth… I am already borrowing mine and pushing my friends to buy an read the book.

    God bless this awesome family!!!

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Thank you Samuel. Yes this book is being read enthusiastically by your generation, the youth. The impact & the challenge on their lives has been amazing. On one recent panel discussion around this book, one young man made a statement like this: “When Dr. Tibebu chose to serve the people of Kebridehar, he was as young as me… This book is not a story of some old person, it is the story of a young Tibebu…” By the way, there will be an upcoming panel discussion & comments of readers you might not want to miss on Elshaddai Television Network. We will update you all on the specific airing dates.

  • Meron Tekleberhan says:

    Dear Etye Lishan and Family, I started this book on Sunday evening and I did not want to do anything else before I finished it very early this morning. After I had finished reading it all I could think of was to find a way to let you know how transformational your writing this book has been for me. I am glad to see here that many others share this experience. Your story has freshly reminded me of the Greatness of the God who has elected us to be his own! The past few years in his house seem to have dulled my awareness of this but your writing made confront its reality. I am humbled by your obedience, your courage and your great love for your husband. I am proud that in our land God has raised women of faith like you and great heroes like Dr. Tibebu. Reading ‘Tibebu’ has not only been a source of spiritual revival but it has also convicted me of my attitude towards family and marriage. It has led me to see the greatest gifts from God are those that we are most likely to take for granted!!! God Bless you, your children and the extended family of prayer partners you have been blessed with. I look forward to meeting your amazing husband in heaven!

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Meron dear! I get so happy and comforted whenever I come across such comments from readers of ‘Tibebu’ like you. Yes the Lord God has called you and me for a greater purpose than we will ever know. We get excited when we see a glimpse of his calling. Hold tight my dear and continue to bring your greatest gifts, like your marriage, under the shadow of the Almighty so that you blend together and bring forth the beauty of Christianity!

  • Daniel Kebede says:

    I don’t know what to say!. I am very much lucky to get and read this Lovely,Teaching and Inspirational story with only 20 USD. I want to say you thank you!. From the moment i read this book, it is not only the book of Job which teaches me Patience, but also this story will contribute much to teach me patience before God.Even though, everything you have came across was painful, what God has done is right.Let God be praised!

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Thanks Daniel! I’m so pleased to know what this book is doing in people’s lives! What can I say, brother? All the pain, sorrow, waiting, and puzzling situations are all worth it when you get to see the full picture! 


  • Ruth N. says:

    I cannot stop thinking about this book, the miracle things God did in this family. I am now in office and can’t wait to go back home and read this blessing book.
    God bless you my dear family

    • Lishan Agonafer says:

      Dear Ruth, isn’t the Lord God so mightily working in our days too? He takes ordinary people like us and does the extraordinary!

  • ezra ejigu says:

    i am so happy, and excited about the book … as a journalist, i am so happy. let lord bless z family

  • Nigussie Bogale says:

    Dear Lishan and family, for what a story and what a book? May the lord provide you with all the strength and power to carry what you are going through. I was introduced to the book by Pastor Asfaw Bekele at the end of my two year clinical fellowship stay in Vancouver. By the way superb brothers and sisters in Vancouver, BC. I was totally unable to put the book down! My wife and kids started to worry when I started reading it at traffic light stops. Amazingly written story of not only your beloved Dr Tibebu but also history of Ethiopian evangelical church and the government as well. As one of the commentators had already said it should be filmatized. Why not.

    After reading the book as fast as humanly possible, I really wanted to send you a comment and Pastor Muluwork of Helsinki came to my rescue during his recent vista to Stavanger, Norway informing me about the existence og this blogg. Again, thanks for sharing us such a tantalising story of a great colleague who is a role model for all us in the profession as well as for all fathers and other professionals.
    May God bless you abundantly.

  • samuel haile says:

    The first thing that makes me to start reading the book are the comments given at the back of the book. among them one says; It’s also the story of the lord. and i determined to read if it is going to be true.while i was reading i was highly touched by the power of the mighty which healped your family from the very beginning. shortly i have gate this things reading the book; love,faith,the benefit of envolving God in every decisions one made,listening,responding and experiencing the voice of God. the books made to look at my self in some of the moments i have read it crying ,praising and laughing. GOD BLESS U ALL YOUR FAMILY

  • Eyob Getaneh says:

    Grace and spiritual blessing be to you and peace from God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ! My name is Eyob Getaneh; I am born again Christian. In the meantime i am third year computer science student in Alemaya University. Currently i am serving in our campus Christian students fellowship. I have read your amazing book entitled “TIBEBU YE MEDREBDAW EREGNA” I found it such a great blessing to my life besides it force me to revise my life’s principle. Both of you are our spiritual father and mother for todays generation as the apostles do. I have seen two major things in your family “LOVE” and “PRAYER” which are the foundation for your family. Your faith in God Is also awesome!
    But, After I read it the whole book and come back to very first page again I read something that the book is about D/r Tibebu Hileselase. In my opinion as I understood from the book: it is not only about D/r but also about you. Why you are afraid to say the book is about D/r Tibebu and Lishan Agonafer ? I am forced to say this because half of the book is about you and your children when D/r was in Somalia even after that also. If I mistaken please correct me. May God bless you and your family from his kindness!!

    Dear Haileselassie Family,

    Just wondering if there is any possibility to check the delivery status of the book as I haven’t got
    any tracking no (placed the order on 28th May)?

    Thank you,

  • Anteneh says:

    Lucky is a person who have the privilege of reading “Tibebu: Yemidrebedaw Iregna” BUT having the author herself speak about the book in one’s local church makes one even luckier ! We at Hawassa Full Gospel Believers’ Church(Ethiopia) can’t wait to see Eteye Lishan at our church the coming Sunday(July 6/2014) afternoon. WE ARE WAITING !!!

    From the event at Hawassa Full Gospel Believer’s Church Sene 29/2006 E.C.

    የ “ጥበቡ የምድረበዳው እረኛ” መጽሐፍ ጸሐፊ ወ/ሮ ሊሻን አጎናፍር እሁድ ሰኔ 29/2006 ዓ.ም በሀዋሳ ሙሉ ወንጌል አማኞች ቤተ ክርስቲያን በመገኘት ስለ መጽሐፉ እና ስለቤተሰቧ የሕይወት ምሥክርነት ሰጥታለች፡፡ እንደተጠበቀው በጣም ደስ የሚል ጊዜ ነበር፡፡ በምድር ዙሪያ ሁሉ መጽሐፉ ስላመጣው በጎ ተፅዕኖ ከመሰከረች በኋላ፣ “እግዚአብሔር በእያንዳንዱ ሰው ሕይወት ልዩ የሆነ ሊሰራው የሚፈልገው ዓላማ አለው” በሚል ሃሳብ መጽሐፍዋንም እያጣቀሰች በሚገርም ትህትና፣ በሚማርክ ንግግር ታዳሚውን ስትመክር፣ ስታበረታታ፣ ስታጽናና አምሽታለች፡፡

    ኋላም ጉባኤው ስለመጽሐፉ የተሰማውን እንዲናገር ዕድል ተሰጠው፡፡ ብዙዎቹ መጽሐፉን ሲያነቡ በእንባ እንደነበረ መሰከሩ፤ እዚያው ሲናገሩም ከሚተናነቃቸው እና አንዳንዶቹም ሊቆጣጠሩት ካልቻሉት እንባ ጋር፡፡

    ከዚህ ቀጥሎ ያለው መጽሐፉን ያገኘሁበት መንገድ እና ስለ መጽሐፉም የተሰማኝን የገለፅኩበት፣ በፕሮግራሙም ላይ በፓስተር ተስፋዬ ጋቢሶ የተነበበው ጽሑፍ ነው፡፡

    ——————— ———————
    መጽሐፉን ያገኘሁት በስጦታ ነበር፡፡ ከአንድ ጓደኛዬ ለዚህኛው ዓመት ልደቴ ተበርክቶልኝ፡፡ መጽሐፉን ገለጥ ሳደርገው የሚከተለውን ማስታወሻ እና የምኞት መግለጫ አነበብኩ፡- “ፍቅር፣ ፀሎት፣ የእግዚአብሔርን ድምፅ መስማት፣ እምነት፣ በመታዘዝ ጌታን ማገልገል፣ ተስፋ… ሁሉም በዚህ መጽሐፍ ውስጥ ይታያሉ!

    በመጽሐፉ ውስጥ ብዙ የምንታዘበው ነገር አለ፡-
    – ለካ ሰው በእግዚአብሔር እየታመነም ቢሆን በብዙ መከራ ውስጥ ያልፋል – መጨረሻው ማሸነፍ ቢሆንም !
    – ለካ እግዚአብሔር በእርሱ የሚታመኑትን የማያሳልፋቸው መንገድ፣ የማያሻግራቸው የድል ጎዳና የለም !?
    – ለካ በእያንዳንዲቷ የዕለት እርምጃ የእግዚአብሔር ፈቃድ ይጠየቃል !?
    – በዚህ፣ ሰዉ ሁሉ የብቻውን ኑሮ ለመኖር በሩን እና ልቡን በዘጋበትም ዘመን ሕጻን-አዋቂ፣ ነጭ-ጥቁር፣ የሚያውቀውን-የማያውቀውን … ብቻ ሰው የተባለን ሁሉ በእውነተኛ ታላቅ ፍቅር የሚወድድ፣ አጠገቡም ሲያገኘው በጉርሻ የሚያጨናንቅ የፍቅር ሰው (ለካ ዛሬም) አለ !?
    – ለካ በሄደበት ሁሉ ዋና ነገሩ የወገኖች ሕብረት እና የእግዚአብሔር መመለክ የሆነ፣ ታሞ በተኛበት አልጋ ላይ እንኳን ራሱን በውል በማያውቅበት ሁኔታ ውስጥ ከአንደበቱ የሚወጣው ይኸው የቅዱሳን ኅብረት የሆነ ሰው አለ !?

    ደግሞም

    – ይህች ሴት ምሳሌነቷ በዚህ አያበቃም፤ በቤቷ እያለፈ ያለው መከራ ሳይበግራት በተለያዩ መንፈሣዊ ሚድያዎች ውስጥ በመሳተፍ እና በመምራት የወንጌል ስራን የምትሰራም ናት እንጂ !
    – የምርኮኛው እና የዚህች ባለአደራ “Single mom” ልጆች ደግሞ ሌሎቹ ምሳሌዎች ናቸው፡፡ አንድም ቀን እንኳን በአይናቸው አይተውት የማያውቁትን አባታቸውን በየቀኑ በተደጋጋሚ “አባታችንን አምጣልን” በሚል ፀሎታቸው ከጨካኙ የሶማሊያ መንግሥት – ከሲያድ ባሬ እጅ የተናጠቁ (እንደስማቸው) የረቂቅ እምነት ምሳሌዎች፡፡
