Fulani Christian Beaten, Rejected by Family

[203] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Jelem.

Jelem is a Fulani who gave her life to Christ in 2020. When her family discovered her newfound faith, they harassed her, beat her and eventually disowned her. Jelem has now moved in with an uncle, and a local pastor is helping her finish school. Jelem shared with front-line workers that, though sometimes she struggles to get by, she hopes to attend Bible college after finishing school. Pray for Jelem to remain firm in her faith amid the suffering and rejection she has experienced. Pray that she can show the love of Christ to her Fulani family members, and that they may come to know Jesus as their Savior and Lord.

  • "Teach me Your way, O LORD,
    And lead me in a smooth path,
    because of my enemies.
    Do not deliver me to the will of my
    adversaries;
    For false witnesses have risen
    against me,
    And such as breathe out violence.
    I would have lost heart, unless I had
    believed
    That I would see the goodness of the
    LORD
    In the land of the living."
    Psalm 27:11-13. Amen.
