The Muskathlon is an ultimate challenge in an extreme location, to raise maximum funds for persecuted Christians. This Muskathlon in Ethiopia will take place from May 7 to May 15, 2021. 4M is organizing this Muskathlon in collaboration with Open Doors, to support the persecuted church worldwide; in particular in Ethiopia. During your trip you will meet Ethiopian Christians who come into contact with persecution on a daily basis. You travel through a country where there is division and you have the opportunity to radiate and pass on Jesus' love.

 

Never before has Open Doors traveled to Ethiopia with a Muskathlon. Yet our presence and prayer are desperately needed for this country. In parts of Ethiopia, the influence of Islam is increasing. For example, there are schools where someone receives free education if they become Muslims.

In other parts of Ethiopia there are tribes that demand that everyone participate in their rituals and fights. If a Christian refuses, he pays a high price for it. He is forced to give up his faith or loses access to certain facilities.

These Christians are part of the same Body of Christ as you. Show them with this Muskathlon that they are not alone!
