5179. Lambie Renounces Citizenship

Dr. Thomas Lambie went to Ethiopia as a medical missionary. After some time he wanted to buy land for a mission station. An Ethiopian law said that no land could be sold to foreigners. Because Dr. Lambie had great love for Christ and the Ethiopians, he gave up his American citizenship and became an Ethiopian citizen. Then he bought the properties needed for his work.


The U.S.A., glad to honor him because of his great work in Ethiopia, restored his American citizenship to Dr. Lambie. A Citizen of Heaven will do anything for the charge of their ultimate citizenship.
