Several Christians who were arrested earlier this year have recently seen a positive turn in their case.
These Christians are currently in custody in Somaliland, a semi-autonomous area of Somalia. They were arrested earlier this year and were originally accused of spreading Christianity.

After several court days, however, the prosecutor charged the Christians with denouncing Islam, which carries a death sentence for Muslims who decide to follow Christ.
However, the judge has now decreed that the case will be decided according to international law instead of Sharia, which is more favourable for Christians.
Let us pray.
- Praise God for this development and pray that God works in the judge’s heart to release these believers.
- Pray that their faith will remain strong while they are in prison and pray that they can share the love of Christ with other prisoners as well as prison and court officials.
- Pray the nation of Somalia may become more open to the Gospel. Pray for the many secret believers in Somalia.
