Overcomers bears witness in a time of discrimination and persecution to how God delivers His people. Both from leaders under severe pressure and from ordinary believers caught in the vortex of Marxist re-education and cultural upheaval, these testimonies primarily from the Kale Heywet Church community recount experiences during the Ethiopian Revolution (1974-1991).
About the Author
Dr. Charles and Kay Bascom with their three young sons first left the United States in 1964 to serve with SIM in medical missions in Ethiopia. The Bascoms returned there periodically through the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. This drew them into the experience of the Kale Heywet Church community during the Ethiopian Revolution. When it was over, Kay assisted SIM's former East Africa Director with the documentation of the Church's two-decade repression. Over one hundred people were interviewed and drafts checked by executive officers of the Kale Heywet Church. Kay Bascom makes her home in Manhattan, Kansas.
