Students Punished for Following Jesus
What country in the world needs the most prayer?
Although it is important to pray for all countries where Christians are persecuted, one worker from The Voice of the Martyrs encourages Christians to especially remember Eritrea.
Men, women, youth, and children in Eritrea have all been arrested for their Christian faith and activities. Recently, VOM learned that 28 Eritrean boys and 11 girls were arrested for “Christian beliefs and for their commitment to Christ.”
The students, all in high school, were not allowed to be part of a graduation ceremony. Reports say that officials told the students that they will not be able to go to college or get out of jail unless they deny Christ.
While they are in jail, the students do not get enough food and water. They are forced to do hard work, and they are treated harshly.
How many Christians can you inform about Eritrean Christians so that they can pray for them?
