Thirty families turned back to Islam after facing intense community pressure, said local church planter Sujen, who became a believer through a Bible correspondence course several years ago.

After becoming convinced Jesus was the Way, the Truth and the Life, he began gradually sharing with others in his community. Though his parents rejected him, Sujen went on to lead all his brothers and their spouses to Christ. Over time, he baptised almost 100 families in four villages.

β€œIn the beginning I never faced any problems,” he said. Last year, however, a wealthy Muslim patron hired a thug to go around intimidating the new Christians. Several lost jobs. Those who had small businesses found no one would buy from them.

Eventually, a group of 30 families were taken to the mosque and asked to reconvert to Islam, and they gave in.

  • Pray for the families who have turned back to Islam. May they hasten to return to the Lord and be renewed in their strength.
  • Pray they will find encouragement from the love and support of Sujen and other believers.
  • Pray the Holy Spirit may be at work in the community and that the witness of Sujen and other believers may powerfully move those who currently oppose the Gospel.
