From :iconseekhim:

Among some tribes in the Omo River Valley in southwestern Ethiopia 
certain children are considered Mingi (Impure, Ritually polluted)

Reasons for being declared Mingi are:
Being born out of wedlock.
Being the result of an unplanned pregnancy.
Being born a twin.
Being born with a cleft lip or palate.
Being born with some sort of deformity or imperfection.
Having one's genitals injured in some way.
Having ones teeth develop in the upper jaw before the lower jaw.
Chipping a tooth during childhood.

Children declared Mingi are considered cursed by the spirits.

It is believed that if allowed to live a Mingi child will bring misfortune to the community.

Children declared Mingi are either abandoned to die or killed. 

Mingi children are either drowned, starved, or, in the case of infants, 
have dirt stuffed in their mouths so that they choke to death.

Please, please pray that this evil practice stop!

Only Jesus deserves to be glorified. And besides I'm not much of a Christian at times.

As for my story.

This link goes to my own personal story.

This is my statement of belief

This is a poem I wrote once that further illustrates what I believe
