More Arrests

Twenty-five more Christians were recently arrested in the town of Dekemhare, adding to the approximate 300 Christians arrested earlier this year. The 25 were from various denominations around town and were arrested on the last weekend in November. According to VOM contacts, they are being held at Mai Serwa prison, which is outside the capital city of Asmara and where conditions are better than in some of the desert prisons. The Eritrean government arrested around 300 people in June 2019, bringing the total number of known Christian prisoners to around 600. In the past, as many as 3,000 Christians have been held, and many Eritreans continue to flee the country every day. Pray for the believers in prison to stay committed to their faith and to be strengthened through the Holy Spirit in whatever circumstances they face.
