Family Rejected by Community for Following Christ

[229] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Sister Hermida.

Sister Hermida and her husband have four children. Her husband came to faith in Christ through listening to Christian music, and eventually his whole family trusted Christ. Because of their Christian faith, their indigenous community opposes them. The community has refused them basic necessities such as clean water, education for their children and any form of work to provide an income for themselves. Amid the hostility they face, they continue to share God’s love with those in their community. Pray for Sister Hermida and her family to remain firm in their faith despite these trials. Pray that their faithful witness will draw others in their community to faith in Christ.
