Mother Curses Daughter for Faith in Christ

[271] prayers in [22] nations have been posted for Anifa.

Anifa is 19 years old and came to faith in Christ earlier this year. She had been suffering from seizures and received healing through prayer at a Christian church in Arua. Her mother, a radical Muslim, became enraged at her daughter’s conversion and threw her out of their home. Her mother also cursed her and threatened to have her killed. After Anifa’s mother kicked her out, she moved in with her aunt, who is also a Christian. Anifa has enrolled in tailoring classes, but her aunt is planning to relocate to South Sudan, and Anifa will be looking for a home once again. Pray for Anifa to remain firm in her faith as she faces trials. Pray for safety and peace of mind as she rebuilds her life.
