Believers Hopeful for Change Under New Peace Deal

[150] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Eritrean believers.

Eritrean believers inside and outside the country are cautiously hopeful a new peace deal between Ethiopia and Eritrea will end decades of animosity and promote greater freedom within Eritrea. “All our family in Eritrea are holding their breath with high expectation, hope and prayer,” wrote a VOM contact. On Monday, July 16, the first airline flight between the two countries in many years took place. One prison has been reportedly shut down, and a few Christian prisoners were released along with many political prisoners. “We are so excited to see what’s next,” wrote the VOM contact. However, concerns remain. The VOM contact asked for prayer that false theology does not gain influence and that the church remains solidly focused on Jesus. Many other believers, especially long-time leaders, remain in prison.
