New Christian Forced to Flee Country

[218] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Ammer.

A Christian convert from Islam was forced to move to another city and eventually leave the country after someone reported his conversion to authorities. After accepting Christ, Ammer’s family treated him badly, beating him and claiming he was insane. Someone also reported him to Jordanian authorities, causing legal problems. When Ammer published a video criticizing Islam, both his family and the authorities threatened him again, prompting Ammer to leave the country for his own safety. “My life changed when I followed Jesus,” he said. “He filled my heart with love. I can see I am worshiping a living God who listens, loves and doesn’t scare people off.”

  • God, I am so thrilled every time I read stories about new believers arising from lands hostile to the Gospel. I am thankful for Ammer, and I ask you will continue strengthening him, and helping him grow in faith and wisdom. I do pray for the Jordanians who continue to live in darkness, who desperately need to see Isa as their Savior, not a prophet.
