Today, let's write a letter of encouragement to Dr. Gebremeskel himself.
From VOM's Prisoner Alert website:
"Dr. Kiflu Gebremeskel, a leading figure of Full Gospel Church of Eritrea, was arrested on May 23, 2004. He has a Ph.D. in mathematics from Chicago University. His wife and four children have not been able to visit him. Jailed Protestants are routinely subjected to physical beatings and severe psychological pressure to deny their religious beliefs."
From this Prisoner Alert page, click on "Write a Letter" on the left-hand side. You can choose from various encouraging biblical phrases, which will automatically be translated, generating a finished letter. Please follow the instructions about not mentioning Voice of the Martyrs or Prisoner Alert directly in your letter, even cutting off any mention or website name that may appear at the top or bottom of the page when printed. Take a few minutes to print out the letter, sign it, address it as directed and drop it in your mailbox. The postage for a letter to Eritrea is only $1.15. (To send letters like this more easily in the future, you can purchase Global Forever stamps from the post office.)
