Refugee Remains Faithful Amid Hardships

[321] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Abdallah.

Abdallah, a Syrian refugee in Lebanon, holds fast to his Christian faith despite suffering unemployment, homelessness and persecution from Muslim family members. Although his father was a committed teacher of Islam, Abdallah was attracted to Christianity at an early age. He said he resisted his first visit to a mosque, which left him with a feeling of “fire coming from my face … as if evils were in front of me.” Abdallah purchased his first Bible after his father died, but his mother did not approve. “When my 90-year-old mother saw the Bible, she fainted,” he said. His brothers threw the Bible away and forced him to take a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia. Then, when war broke out in Syria in 2011, the family moved to Lebanon, where Abdallah bought another Bible. He has had difficulty finding work, however, because of his Christian faith. “Even though I have many problems, I decided to get baptized one year ago,” Abdallah said. “I have really faced many hard situations and I became homeless, but I will never leave my faith.” Pray for Abdallah, and thank God for the way He has worked in his life.

  • "Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you"
