Widow Refuses to Worship Snake God

[261] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Tavesa.

Tavesa, a widow who lives with her son, became a Christian three years ago after being healed of an illness through prayer. Her son told her repeatedly to stop following Jesus, and when she refused, he kicked her out of his house. Tavesa now lives in an old house with a leaking roof and no running water. Her son, who worships a snake god, recently put a poster of the snake god on her front door and warned her not to remove it. Tavesa has remained faithful to Christ even though she struggles financially and sometimes can’t afford the bus fare required to get to church. Pray that her children and their spouses will come to faith in Christ. Pray for better living conditions and for Tavesa’s spiritual growth.
