Three Christian men, Tibebu Mekuria, Dawit Jemberu and Belete Tilahun, have been falsely accused of burning down a church building in Gulema Iyesus. They each face up to nine years in prison, and their final chance to appeal is on 8 July.
But God has used this terrible situation for good, and these men recently brought a man who is serving a life sentence for robbery and murder to Christ! “The so-called ‘iron-faced murderer’ has now become a man of ‘sharing and love’,” says Open Doors.
- For justice for Tibebu, Dawit and Belete as they make their final appeal on 8 July
- For comfort for their families – Tibebu and Dawit are single, but Belete has a wife, a son and two daughters who are struggling without his support
- That the man who has recently come to Christ would grow in his love and knowledge of God
That God would continue to reach many with His love through these men.
Isn’t this a wonderful expression of faith and belief in our Father God by these three prisoners? Even in adversity and being humiliated in prison they are still working for God!
Please join me in praying for them and their families.
With many heartfelt blessings
