Severe Persecution in Hosanna, Ethiopia

  Severe Persecution in Hosanna, Ethiopia The Gafat Bete Israel community of Hosanna, where one of four Ethiopian MJBI schools is located, has been under severe persecution since July 6, 2014.

The government is investigating this only for the purpose of exploitation. One person has died because of this conflict and three from the community have been kidnapped.

They are desperately in need of medical attention and intervention. Please pray for the Jewish Gafat of Hosanna for continued breakthrough…
