Former Muslims Forced Back to Islam

[246] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Sujan.

Thirty families turned back to Islam after facing intense community pressure, said local church planter Sujen, who became a believer through a Bible correspondence course several years ago. After becoming convinced Jesus was the Way, the Truth and the Life, he began gradually sharing with others in his community. Though his parents rejected him, Sujen went on to lead all his brothers and their spouses to Christ. Over time, he baptized almost 100 families in four villages. “In the beginning I never faced any problems,” he said. Last year, however, a wealthy Muslim patron hired a thug to go around intimidating the new Christians. Several lost jobs. Those who had small businesses found no one would buy from them. Eventually, a group of 30 families were taken to the mosque and asked to reconvert to Islam, and they gave in. Pray for the families who have turned back to Islam. Pray for the Holy Spirit’s work in their life and community. Pray that Sujen will not become discouraged.
