My friends in Ethiopia are being attacked

Have you read the latest news from Ethiopia?

While I won’t tell you exactly which part I’m referring to, I met some of the people mentioned in that article last summer when my friend Danny and I went to Ethiopia. I know that my friends have been beaten and chased.

There is much more going on that is mentioned in that article. The destruction of the church buildings is only the tip of the iceberg. Many of the attacks against Christians in Ethiopia go unreported because the local government (and regional government) is helpless (or apathetic) to stop it.

Please pray for my friends. Pray that they would stand firm, trusting completely in Jesus Christ.
