The number of Christians imprisoned in Eritrea has reportedly risen to 640 in recent months. In May, 15 women were arrested at a house church and are now imprisoned in Mai Serwa.

Thirty people arrested at a wedding in late June are being held at a police station in Asmara, where Christians have in the past been detained for years on end. And another group of Christians were recently released from the notorious Dahlak Kebir island prison, which has been described as a huge jail constructed of sheet-metal buildings and shipping containers.

Although the prisoners have been released, they are not allowed to leave the island and are still being used as slave labor by the government.

Continue to pray for these prisoners as well as some others who have been held for nearly two decades.

Pray for Eritrea.
