Young Woman Threatened, Beaten for Christ

[259] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for Eliza.

Eliza, 19, placed her faith in Christ in 2018. When she became a Christian, she discarded items that she had received from a witch doctor, including a healing stone she’d been given when she was sick. Eventually, her family discovered her Christian faith and learned she had thrown out the stone. Much of her family then threatened her to stop going to church, and they beat her when she refused. Her father beat her so severely that he broke her shoulder. He also destroyed all her belongings, including her Bible. Eliza is now staying with another relative while she tries to finish school. Pray for Eliza’s shoulder to heal fully and that she will remain firm in her faith. Pray that she can show the love of Christ to her family members and that her faithful witness will lead them to trust in Christ.
