Zita is a 15 year old girl who was born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother.

As the couple was raising Zita, Zita’s father gave her mom an ultimatum: convert to Islam…or lose your daughter.

Even after her husband’s threat, Zita’s mother refused to deny Jesus. Unfortunately, just eight months into Zita’s life, the child was taken from her home and forced to live with her Muslim relatives.

Tragically, Zita’s mother died that same month, possibly from a stress-related disease. A year later, Zita’s father also died unexpectedly. After her parents passed away, Zita was passed back and forth between Muslim and Christian relatives.

Still, along the way, she found Jesus. But this didn’t make for an easy road. When Zita converted to Christ at the age of 12, it led to severe persecution. Today, she continues to be harassed and mistreated for following Jesus.

Today, for the time being, Zita remains in the care of a Christian family and we have the opportunity to support her. As a result, we’d like to invite you to please take a moment to write a note of encouragement to this young sister in Christ to let her know that she is not alone–that God and a worldwide church of believers stand with her.
