Despite being one of the first Christian nations in Africa, Ethiopia is being influenced by surrounding Islamic countries. Muslim converts to Christianity are often cut off from their families. The Ethiopian Orthodox Church also plays a large part in persecuting the Church from within. They consider themselves the only ‘true’ Christian denomination and can be very hostile towards other believers.

Pray: For unity across the Church and that their reconciliation will be a testimony of God’s love to many.
