Pray for Ethiopia - facebook page

An evangelical church in central Ethiopia was ordered to close and leave its premises by the Oromia Regional State Authorities. Discussions with the local government failed to change their minds. Its not just evangelical churches facing opposition. Orthodox churches have also reported problems. One church had land confiscated by local authorities who gave it to followers of the increasingly powerful Wakefeta African Traditional Religion. As the Church grows rapidly in this nation, opposition is to be expected.

Pray that God will demonstrate his power and authority (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 4:20).

Pressure on churches building; evangelical church told to vacate after ten years (WWM)
