Nadia, a Christian convert in Tajikistan, is experiencing severe persecution from her Muslim family members. Nadia converted from Islam to Christianity in 2011 and was baptised. When her mother found out, she beat Nadia, burned her Bible and tore her clothing.
Nadia tried to run away, but her brothers found her. They shaved her hair, gave her a public beating, and locked her in their house. When she ran away, they caught her again.
Nadia called a Voice of the Martyrs contact on 9 June, sobbing, and said her family had beaten her again, this time for hours, and forced her to say the Muslim statement of faith. The VOM contact has since been unable to reach her via phone since.

- Pray the Lord will protect Nadia and direct her to a place of safety and provision (2 Corinthians 1:10).
- Please pray Nadia will remain strong in her faith and that the Lord will bring her family to Christ.
