Christian Convert Released from Prison

[307] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for Sisir.

A Christian convert from Islam who had been imprisoned for more than two years was released on bail recently. Sisir Islam became a believer in 2012 and immediately began sharing Jesus with others in his community, leading 17 friends to Christ. On Sept. 23, 2014, after returning home from a VOM-supported training center, Sisir was charged with the murder of a local business man. He later learned that Muslim leaders in his village had accused him of the murder as retribution for his conversion to Christianity. The prison guards and prisoners treated Sisir poorly while he was imprisoned, and he was frequently ill. Finally, in July 2018, he was released on bail and returned home to recover. Thank God for Sisir’s faithful witness, and pray for his full recovery.
