Woman Flees Father and Brother Planning to Kill Her

[329] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Acenath.

Acenath was a married mother of three children when she became a Christian. She kept it secret for many years, but her family eventually learned of her Christian faith. They first tried to persuade her to return to Islam, but when five members of her extended family also came to know Christ, Acenath’s father decided she was a “virus” that had to be stopped. He and Acenath’s brother beat her severely and made plans to kill her. As they waited for her bruises to heal, so they could make her death look like an accident, Acenath took the opportunity to escape. Today, she lives in another country and meets weekly with other Christian converts from Islam. Pray for Acenath, and pray that her family will come to know Christ.
