Headlining today’s news, United Nations officials are holding peace talks in an attempt to avoid another outbreak of fighting between Ethiopia and Eritrea. While the situation remains tense, SIM International’s Ron Frazee says there is something good that’s come from all the fighting. “They both have armies or soldiers sitting on the front line. Both on the Ethiopia side on the Eritrea side there are studios producing radio programs and these soldiers are listening. And many times they ask questions, but very often the soldiers say, I have accepted Jesus into my life to be my Savior.” Frazee says their mission agency has been affected by the fighting. “Some of the work in the north part of Ethiopia has had to stop because of the fighting. Missionaries pull out and go down to Addis Ababa and then when things settle down they go back again. And, this has happened several times. So, that is somewhat disruptive to the work.”
