The Anywaa People's
Grace and Unity in Christ Ministry
We, the Anywaa people, immigrated to United States of America (USA) from Ethiopia and South Sudan. The Anywaa people speak Dhaa-anywaa as their dialect language. Anywaa people believe in the Creator and Redeemer God. Since they moved to Minnesota in early 1990s, Anywaa people have been worshiping and serving God in many varies places in Minnesota. This year in January 2018, we have also conducted another worshiping group in Rochester, Minnesota, hosted by Calvary Evangelical Free Church. Anywaa people were believers in Christ prior to their coming to America, converted to Christianity through the missionaries who have gone to Africa in the early 1950s right at the end of WWII. Grace and Unity in Christ Ministry is envisioning to reaching out where there are other Anywaa people and planting more churches to bring many souls to Christ beginning from Rochester MN unto worldwide.
