We met Sefinew for the first time during our August 2011 visit. In discussion with Zewdu he said that Sefinew was sleeping at the church during his vacation due to persecution because of his Christian faith. He has one further years to complete at Hawassa Univ studying Horticulture. However he has failed an exam and must resist this again during the year. It is possible his course will be extended should he fail his resit exam . Sefenew is in email contact with his sponsor.
