Pray for Eritrea - facebook page

As a result of the peace agreement between Eritrea and Ethiopia, the border between nations has been opened for the first time in twenty years. In the first two weeks of the border opening, 15,000 people crossed the border from Eritrea to Ethiopia, many to holiday and visit relatives they have not seen for two decades, but also many who plan to use this opportunity to escape from Eritrea on a more permanent basis. Pray for wisdom for these two nations to be able to deal with this situation that could prove volatile for the Eritrean government already committed to keeping its citizens under its strict controls (The Bible, Isaiah 61:1).

For the first time in years, Eritreans can leave their country freely (The Economist)
