Eritrea is an extremely volatile place for Christians. Homes are raided, Bibles confiscated, and Christians are forced to disappear. Believers are imprisoned and tortured, so they would deny Christ. In Islamic regions of Eritrea, converts face persecution from their family members. Despite this, the Church continues to remain faithful in the face of persecution.

Pray: That those imprisoned for their faith will find peace and comfort amid their situation.
