In the name of the Father ,and the Father and the Son , one God Amen.
Dear Dejeselamawuyan,


I am gonna criticize you.
You are not performing as expected from you & according what is happening at our church. To tell you the truth , I am disappointed by you.
Because you have never tried to define the strategy how to combat the combined problems facing the church, especially by the government and the Patriarch. You said no thing regarding the speech made by Prime Minister which compares Mahbere Kidusan with terrorists. You have not tried to analyze such big issue & inform the public.
Please ,define strategy how to inform the laity about the challenges the facing & how to be organized in order to stop the influence made by Woyane.
I will try my best to inform that Woyane is the worst Evil that is working to weaken our church both from inside & outside . If woyane involves in weakening our church , we must go to politics to weaken Woyane. And I will do as much as I can. I believe ,no other option than this and prayer.

ይሁን እንጅ ለእነዚህ የቀን ጅቦች ኪስ መሙያ የሚሆን ገንዘብ እንዳናዋጣ መጠንቀቅ አለብን፡፡ ይልቁንም እውነተኛ በሆኑና የገጠር አብያተ-ክርስቲያናት እና ገዳማትን እንዲሁም የአብነት ትምህርት-ቤቶችን ለማጠናከር እንዲሁም ወንጌልን ለማስፋፋት የሚተጉ ማኅበራትን በተደራጀ ሁናቴ ብንደግፍ የሚሻል ይመስለኛል፡፡ እዚህም ላይ የጅቦቹ ተላላኪና የተሃድሶ አራማጅ ለሆኑት ማኅበራት ተባባሪ እንዳንሆን መጠንቀቅ ይኖርብናል፡፡ ጊዜው 8ኛው ሽህ ስለሆነ እኛም በነገር ሁሉ ተዘናግተን እንዳንወድቅ መጠንቀቅ አለብን፡፡

I do not see any problem with construction of this hall. But It has to include church inside so that it serves only for worship and spritual congregation of the church. But I do not trust those guys their plan can be to rent it for music concert and congregation of other spritual and public congregation as income source.This is what they call developmental building...
