"Jesus Is My Relative"

[206] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Chaltu Abdalla.

Chaltu Abdalla was born and raised in a Muslim family, but she found faith in Christ when she was young. She later married a Christian man and started a family. Earlier this year, her husband was killed by gunmen, and their home, crops and possession were burned to the ground in violent ethnic-based conflicts that targeted evangelical Christians. Chaltu went to her family for support after her husband's death, but they refused to help her and her children unless she returned to Islam. But she remained firm in her faith. "I will not forsake the Lord Jesus," she told her family. "He is my relative." She has returned to her home village and is struggling to get by, yet she continues to hope in God. "When people ask her how she is going to continue living like this, she tells them, 'Jesus is my relative,'" a front-line worker said. Pray for Chaltu and her children as they rebuild their lives after losing everything. Pray that her unwavering witness will lead her Muslim family to faith in Christ.
