Convert Couple Severely Tested

[209] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for John and Malika.

Though Egypt has a small Christian population, life is not easy for Muslims who choose to convert to Christianity. John, a committed hardliner Muslim, came to faith in 2014 after studying the Bible in order to convince Christian friends to convert to Islam. His wife, Malika, also became a Christian after observing his new character for three years. John knew how his family felt about converts: one cousin who came to Christ was thrown from a fourth-floor apartment, and another was imprisoned in a psychiatric hospital. When his family realized John had become a Christian, they imprisoned and tortured him for four months before John escaped. Each time that John has found a job for the past three years, his family has followed him and had him fired. About a year ago, his wife and daughters were home alone when family members burst through the door, beat Malika and abducted their two girls. They intended to kill both husband and wife. Christian friends intervened, however, and the family is now safely living with other believers, though they still suffer trauma from the attack.
