Happy 6th Anniversary to Appeal for Purity!

My! My! My!

God is good, friends! God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good!

And God is faithful!

He saw me through many difficult situations and circumstances. He gave me a loving and caring husband and kids; they’re my strong allies. No matter what I face, they always believe in me to keep on keeping on.

Berhanemeskel Tenkir Banko (my husband), Abel Banko, Lydia Banko and Biruk Banko. These people are precious gifts of God in my life. Because I chose to follow my call, they with me faced the attack of the enemy in many fronts but, hallelujah, but God! Amen! But God!

if the Lord had not been on our side
    when people attacked us,
they would have swallowed us alive
    when their anger flared against us;
the flood would have engulfed us,
    the torrent would have swept over us,
the raging waters
    would have swept us away.

Praise be to the Lord,
    who has not let us be torn by their teeth.
We have escaped like a bird
    from the fowler’s snare;
the snare has been broken,
    and we have escaped.
Our help is in the name of the Lord,
    the Maker of heaven and earth.” Psalm 124

God is our faithful Provider! I thank Jesus Christ for being with us and protecting us day and night. Please thank God on our behalf!

And I thank God for all of you my friends, Appeal for Purity website SUBSCRIBERS, Appeal for Purity YouTube channel SUBSCRIBERS, Appeal for Purity Facebook page families who LIKED the page and all of you who are following this ministry on Instagram and Twitter.


Because of you, I keep coming to Appeal for Purity. When I read your “I am learning” kind of comment/message/email, I forget all my pains, sufferings, frustrations and vexation and come back to it again. Yes! Y’all are the reasons that God called me into this ministry, to build and edify you in Christ. I let myself not forget this truth. I am not in this for my name but for the name of Jesus Christ, for His bride. Praise God!

Thank you my friends for following Appeal for Purity to this day!

If anyone of you has been following Appeal for Purity since 2013, my special “Thank You” goes to you! THANK YOU!

At the end, please allow me to thank my kind, humble and sweet husband once more, my husband, my best friend and my love: Thank you “yenei mare” (means, my honey) for praying for me. Thank You for letting me do what I am called and loved to do. Thank you for listening to all my frustrations and fears but still pushing me to do what I am called to do: to write, read and speak for the truths of God. My Love, without you standing beside me, you know me, I can’t even lift one of my feet to walk. Thank you for loving me even when I am sick and bedridden for days. Thank you for speaking on me relentlessly the truths and promises of God. Thank you for tenderly reminding me of the sacred call of God in my life when I want to run away from His call like Jonah.

What can I say? May God bless you, my sweetheart.
