Eli comes from a village where there is much prejudice towards those who are blind. Some in Togo believe that those who are blind have been cursed and have sinned against the spirits around them and their ancestors. People in Eli’s village insult him and tease him because he is blind. He says that when his parents are not in the house with him, people come and beat him. Please pray for safety, encouragement, and protection for Eli.
Please pray for Eli’s salvation. He has not yet accepted Jesus as his Savior. Eli says he believes in God, but he does not yet know Jesus.
