Three years ago, “Karima” learned about the love of Jesus and became a devoted follower. As the married mother of three, she hoped her husband, “Ismaeil,” a Muslim, might also believe. Instead, he became even more devoted to his Muslim faith and became an imam.
He forbade her and their daughter from reading the Bible or sharing their faith with others. Then two months ago he began beating his wife and threw out of his home anyone who tried to talk about Jesus. Karima’s husband has had recent health issues that have prevented him from beating her.

- Pray Karima’s husband will come to know the Lord Jesus Christ.
- Pray also for their son who is now attending church and for Karima and her daughter to remain steadfast in their faith.
- Pray for all women in Syria who find themselves in a similar situation, pray the Lord will give them the grace and strength to persevere in their faith and not grow weary or lose heart (Hebrews 12:1-3).
