By The Authority of His Imperial Majesty Emperor Haile Selassie First, the ancient liturgy used by Ethiopians, was translated into English so it could be understood by the English speakers around the world. "Further, Abba Yesehaq led the translation of many literatures about the Ethiopian Church into English". The Ethiopian Orthodox Church is Widely spread outside of Ethiopia as a result of the daily exertions of His Eminence Abba Yesehaq, who was sent by His Imperial Majesty to Jamaica to teach, baptize and shield the Rastafarians and Afro-Centric minded people from the Spiritual Domination of Western Christianity (Rome).
After World War Two Abba served as the main leader of the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo in the West.
The Ethiopians (Thebans) were the first people that ever lived; the first and only race to institute the worship of the gods and the rites of sacrifice. They were the object of worship of nations that appeared civilized at the dawn of History. Baldwin said, "...the foundations of ancient religious mythology, institutions and customs, all had the same source, that is the Thebans", He considered the Chaldean and Egyptian civilizations as very old but the cultural and political organization of Ethiopia was much older.
According to the writer's testimony, Asia did not originate civilization; it brought civilization from the Eritrean Sea.
(Baldwin, Prehistoric Nation)

In 1987 when Peter Tosh (Wolde Semayat) died The Ethiopian Orthodox Church in Jamaica officiated at the funeral, the brothers in South Africa saw the funeral on television and then contacted the church in Jamaica. Abba Yesehaq responded and went to South Africa begining in 1988 before Apartheid was over and taught the people in Port Elizabeth, South Africa the Tewahedo Faith. He ordained preists and established the church there before Apartheid was outlawed. The people said that if the church had not come; Aparthied would not have ended.
On one of his trips Abba Yesehaq carried his booklet he wrote entitled South Africa Land of Martyrs and gave about 200 copies to the members to strenthen them. After that on a later trip to his diocese in South Africa, the church members arranged for His Eminence to visit President Nelson Mandela at his residence. President Mandela recieved His Eminence with great honour. He then surprised Abba by bringing out this special booklet about South Africa written By Abba Yesehaq, from his personal selected book collection on his shelf. President Mandela thanked Abba Yesehaq for his prayers and for publishing the booklet. President Mandela said to Abba that he read the booklet many times as a prayer book when he was in prison on Robben Island and it had given him great courage and hope.Teaching
