What’s Happening Right Now In EthiopiaA string of attacks on Christians by radical Muslims have left at
least two dead and thousands homeless in western Ethiopia.
Reports say Islamic extremists set fire to 59 church buildings and 28 Christian homes in Asendabo.
"One Orthodox believer, whose daughter is a member of Mekane Yesus Church, has been killed," an Ethiopian church leader told Compass Direct News. "Ministers were injured, and many more believers have been displaced."The violence spread to outlaying towns and now more than 4,000 Christians have been forced to flee for their lives.
It began when Muslims accused a Christian of desecrating a Quran by ripping out the pages of the Islamic holy book. Security forces were sent to the area, but they were overwhelmed by the enraged mob.Reports indicate the attacks upon Christians in the African country continue.
[Source: Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) News]Pray for God's intervention and that Ethiopian believers find refuge and safety from these attacks. Pray for the injured and the families of those who have lost their lives. Pray that the attackers will be delivered from the deception of Islam and seek salvation that only faith in Christ offers.
"Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy." 1 Peter 4:12-13
BTW, you can rip out all the pages in the Bible you want, I won't kill you for it.
