Eritrea: Write to Pastor Meron
Meron Gebreselasie was a pastor in the port city of Massawa, Eritrea. He also worked as an anesthetist at a hospital. (If you don’t know, find out what an anesthetist does.)
After he visited in his home with another pastor, the police arrested both men. The government of Eritrea had started a crackdown on evangelical churches a few years earlier.
Pastor Meron has been in prison for a long time. When he was first arrested in June 2004, George W. Bush was president of the United States, and Facebook was new. He is not married, his parents have died, and his sister lives in Canada.
