Former Muslim Tortured and Driven from Home

[290] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Geoffrey.

Geoffrey is a former Muslim who confessed Christ as his Savior earlier this year. When Geoffrey’s father learned of his newfound faith, he tortured him so badly that local police authorities intervened to stop the torture. His father also involved local clan members who cursed Geoffrey and tried to bribe him to recant his Christian faith. When he would not recant, his father chased him from his house and land on his father’s property. Despite this persecution, Geoffrey is determined to follow Christ. “I cannot be convinced otherwise. I have seen the power of God in my life,” he said. “They took away the house and land and threw us out, but they cannot take away our Jesus.” Geoffrey is married and has two young daughters. Pray that they continue to stand firm in Christ. Pray also that Geoffrey would be able to provide for his family and that their physical needs would be met.
