Christians Suffer Under Worsening Conditions

[222] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Eritrean Christians.

Conditions in Eritrea continue to deteriorate despite a peace treaty signed with Ethiopia earlier in 2019 that earned Ethiopia’s president, an evangelical Christian, the Nobel Peace Prize. “The country is becoming worse and worse,” an Eritrean Christian said. “[There is] no electricity, little internet connection, the economy is bad and people are suffering. All phone calls are being monitored closely.” There are currently 600 Christians in prison in Eritrea and about 47 children of Christians left without adult caretakers. “Many people are thinking of leaving,” another Christian said. “Our families are in deep suffering in here.” Continue to pray for Eritrean Christians, and pray that God will change the hearts of Eritrea’s leaders.

IJN Amen
