A group of 15 Believers was arrested once again in recent weeks despite being released from prison in the last few months. These Christians were not engaged in any illegal activity as they were arrested in their homes. "The police actually went to each of their individual houses; they weren't caught in a homestead church or gathering," a Front-line Worker said. The group of Believers includes long-term prisoners who had recently been released from prison, and the group is now being held in Mai Serewa Prison.
Pray for these Christians to not lose hope as they continue to endure persecution for the sake of Christ.
Pray that the Eritrean authorities will release them quickly, and pray that their witness for Christ will lead many others to Him, including their persecutors and jailers.
