Agents Hunt Christians After Preacher's Visit

[327] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Hunted Eritrean Christians.

Security agents are hunting for Christians who attended an informal sermon by the well-known Ethiopian evangelist Surafiel Demssie, who visited Eritrea on the first Ethiopian Airlines flight into the country in more than 20 years. The pastor left Eritrea shortly after his sermon, and police began arresting those associated with him soon afterward. So far, five Christians have been arrested and many others have gone into hiding. A VOM contact asked that we pray for discernment.
