Central Asia Christian Faces Pressure For His Faith

September 12, 2016 by Open Doors in

Within a village in Central Asia, Brother Abdul faces a great dilemma. He is under pressure from local villagers, who constantly pressure him to renounce his Christian faith. A group of young Muslims recently intruded his home and tried threatening him in renouncing his faith. He was told that he would “regret it” if he did not renounce Christ.

Brother Abdul is a courageous believer. He refuses to renounce Christ, and is willing to die for his beliefs. “I might be kicked out the village, I could be beaten, but Jesus went through it all. If my Lord faced persecution, who am I not expect the same treatment?” Brother Abdul is not ashamed of the Gospel, yet he still faces danger in spite of his willingness to be a martyr for Christ.

Pray for the courageous spirt of Brother Abdul. Pray God will protect and preserve him. Pray will God give him wisdom in this situation and that his faith will be a living testimony to his community.
