Pray for this abused sister from Central Asia

September 7, 2022 by Noah Cassetto in Asia

Like many Christians in Central Asia, Nadina comes from a Muslim background. After accepting Christ, Nadina has never looked backbut she is facing a new kind of challenge.

In Central Asia, conversions like Nadina’s can come at a high price: Muslim families often shun converts, even attacking them physically to dissuade them from following Christ. Nadina and her daughter, Gayla, have come under intense persecution from their family for their faith. 

Several days ago, Nadina was brutally beaten by her Muslim husband, Hamad*. She suffered a concussion, a fractured rib and nasal septum, multiple bruises and has a severe hepatoma. Her daughter, Gayla, who is also a Christian, was also beaten by Hamad and faces the anger of her husband, Emir*. Both women were forced to leave their homes and seek safety at a safe house.  

Gayla has a young son and is fearful for his well-being. Both women are recovering from their injuries and are discerning what to do next.  

Join us in prayer

Lord, we ask you to come alongside our sisters, Nadina and Gayla. Heal their injuries and their spirits, like we’ve seen you do countless other times. Keep their faith strong and protect them from further attacks. We ask that you soften their husbands’ hearts and bring peace to these women’s hearts. In Jesus’ name, amen.
