Jesus alerted us we would be persecuted. It is happening every day.
Muslims in the majority-Christian country of Ethiopia started riots in the East Shewa Zone to attack Christians whom they accused of converting Muslims.
They burned down 14 churches of different denominations and left more than 2,000 Christians without places for worship. One church cemetery was also vandalized.
A church leader said: “We have been worshipping outside and sitting on the bare ground bearing the hot sun. We appeal to our brothers elsewhere to come and assist us. The attackers poured petrol and were chanting ‘Allahu Akbar’ [Allah is Greater] before setting the church building on fire.”
