Ghazal, a woman living in Jordan, has faced frequent beatings from her Muslim husband after making the decision to become a Christian. Ghazal, who left Islam to follow Christ, was beaten so severely recently that she had to be hospitalised. “He knocked her front teeth out,” a front-line worker said, “yet she is holding fast to her faith.”

Persecution from family members is a common reality for Christians in Jordan, especially for those who leave Islam to follow Christ. Often, family members create severe hardships for these believers by taking their homes, jobs and even their children.

Ghazal remains with her husband because she fears that under Islamic law, she would lose her children if she left him.
