Believer's Family Torments Him Daily

[210] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Sohail.

Sohail became a believer several years ago, but his family refuses to accept his beliefs. Shortly after his conversion, they ran him out of the house. Today, Sohail, his wife, and their children live nearby, and his family continues to cause trouble. “They are tormenting him daily, kidnapping him often and interrogating him on matters of faith,” a VOM worker wrote. In addition to ongoing persecution, Sohail’s wife was in a car accident a few years ago and is still suffering the painful effects. She lives in a great deal of pain. “No matter how much they harass me, kidnap me or even kill me, I will remain strong in Christ,” Sohail said. “Keep me in prayer always.”
