ZAMBIA: Rejected by Family after Becoming a Christian

ZAMBIA: Rejected by Family after Becoming a Christian

‘Azibo’, a young Zambian, placed his faith in Christ early last year after talking with a front line worker about the nightly dreams he’d been having about Jesus.

When he returned home and told his family about his new Christian faith, they gave him one week to change his mind or face expulsion from the family.

Despite the threat, at the end of the week Azibo told his family members that he could not give up his faith in Jesus. Fulfilling their threat, they kicked him out of the family.

Azibo slept in the open air for a week before the front line worker learned what had happened and invited him to a VOM-supported safe house and business-training program. After Azibo completes the training program a year from now, he should be able to support himself.

  • Thank the Lord for the faithfulness of Azibo who faced difficult opposition early in his Christian walk. Pray the Lord will continue to grow him in his faith. Thank the Lord for His provision for Azibo.
  • Praise God for the way he reveals Himself in dreams and visions. Praise Him too for the way He equips front line workers to effectively share the Gospel and draw many to Christ.
  • Pray for the church of Zambia; may there be an outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit to draw more people into His kingdom.
