At Home – Jerman’s Story

As a young boy, Jerman Disasa was a poor kid who had walked 50 miles to reach the mission school where Rev. Jack Smith was teaching in rural Ethiopia.

Jerman eventually made his way to college in Kansas, then to the University of South Carolina. In Columbia, he worshipped at Eastminster Presbyterian Church and established the connection that continues today.
