Widow of an Imam Places Faith in Christ

[237] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Khadija.

When Khadija’s husband, a well-known imam, died, her in-laws turned her and her three children out of the family home. Khadija often spent time with a neighbor, discussing how much they hated Christianity. One day, however, Khadija’s friend shared the surprising news that she had accepted Christ. Although Khadija distanced herself from her friend, she continued to observe her and noticed a great change in her over the next year. Eventually, Khadija went with her friend to church and placed her faith in Christ. When the news reached her in-laws, who had shown no previous interest in her, they suddenly wanted to take away her children. With help from a pastor, Khadija and the children moved to a safer place, away from her in-laws. “I now have a new family in Christ,” Khadija told a VOM worker. “I love the fellowship and am slowly learning the Word of God.” She asked for prayer, especially for one of her sons who is not firm in his faith.
