Evangelist from Druze Background Faces Continued Persecution

[215] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Ziyad.

Five years ago, Ziyad, who grew up in the Druze religion, placed his faith in Jesus Christ. Since then, he has experienced persecution in a variety of forms. Following his conversion, his family immediately kicked him out of their home. He has been beaten, imprisoned and even kidnapped for his evangelism. And he has been slandered on social media for his Christian faith. Pray for Ziyad as he continues to share the gospel with Muslims and Druze. Pray for his wisdom and discernment as he continues to grow in faith, and pray that he will find a source of income to help pay for housing, food, transportation and other expenses.
