Christian Convert Misses Son Left Behind

[260] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Faven.

After Faven came to know Christ, she suddenly had to leave Eritrea. She was able to take only two of her children with her, leaving a son behind. “Pray for my other son, who is still in Eritrea with his dad and being taught Islam,” she said. “I miss him and I want him to be strong in Christ.” Her other children are doing well in their adopted country, though one of her sons has been asking why his father is a Muslim. Faven is unsure how to answer him. “Let us continue praying for them as a family and to trust the Lord to answer all the hard questions,” the VOM worker said. Faven hopes her entire family will come to know Christ.
