Christians offer their arresting officers chairs to sit!

On June 9, 2006 ten Saudi Arabian police raided a Christian worship meeting in the coastal city of Jeddah. Four East African leaders of the service were arrested. More than 100 Ethiopians, Eritreans and Filipinos were gathered for worship there at 11 a.m. The worshippers gave the policemen chairs to seat and they proceeded to wait for the service to end still clutching their clubs. At the end of the service, two Ethiopians, Mekbeb Telahun and Masai Wendewesen and Eritreans Fekre Gebremedhin and Dawit Uqbay were arrested and put in the city’s deportation jail. They are reportedly doing fine, but it isn’t known how long they will be in there.

Four men have been arrested in Moroni, Comoros for their “involvement in Christianity,” according to a June 14th report by Open Doors. The arrests took place after a complaint by the brother of 15 yr old Christian who was angry that his brother abandoned Islam. The young Christian told police, “I am a follower of Jesus and study the Bible.” They also arrested the Bible study leader and his wife when she came to visit him in jail. She was later released but the four men were jailed for three months. In Comoros, a small three-island nation off the east coast of Africa, freedom of religion is guaranteed in the constitution, but the three church buildings in the nation are restricted to foreigners only.

TODAY, PLEASE PRAY FOR YOUR PERSECUTED BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST ACROSS THE WORLD.
