The award-winning documentary “OMO Child” is the story of Lale Labuko’s journey to end the ancient practice of Mingi in Omo Valley, Ethiopia.

A documentary of an Ethiopian’s effort to end the tribal practice of killing certain infants and children did something to Greenville Pastor Toni Pate.

Pate is hoping the award-winning film, “OMO Child: The River and The Bush,” will have a similar impact on others in Greenville.


Her congregation, Trinity Church of Greenville, located at 100 Pete Hollis Blvd., is hosting a viewing of the documentary at 10:30 a.m. on July 15.

At 1 p.m., Lale Labuko, the “hero” in the OMO Child documentary, will speak.

Labuko, a pastor in Jinka, Ethiopia, will also preach at Trinity Church on July 16, starting at 10:30 a.m.

The OMO Child documentary, Pate said, is “one of the most remarkable pieces I’ve seen in quite a while.”

“It just did something to me as far as the reassurance that one person can actually make a difference in the world,” she said.

That’s the takeaway that Labuko hopes others will have as well when they see the documentary.
