University Teacher Loses Job Because of Faith

[226] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Vera.

A Christian woman was dismissed from her job teaching Russian at a national university after school officials learned of her faith. Vera, a single mother who is raising her children without family support, had hoped that her part-time job teaching Russian would eventually develop into a full-time position. She was a good teacher, and her students liked her. But after fewer than six months on the job, she was told that the university could not allow a church member in her position, especially since she was teaching many foreign students from surrounding countries. Vera was told to either give up her church membership or resign, so she chose to leave her job. Pray that she will find another job so she can continue supporting her family.
