Christian Broadcaster's Life Threatened

[176] prayers in [9] nations have been posted for Amadi.

Amadi was a Muslim who enjoyed arguing with Christians. But he often wrestled with questions that caused him to doubt his beliefs. One night he had a dream in which a fearsome creature was attacking him and wouldn’t stop, even though he cried out for Allah. But when he used the name of Jesus Christ, the creature vanished. Amadi placed his trust in Christ that day and now hosts a television program in which he tells viewers about the problems he sees in Islam. The program has attracted a wide following of people interested to know more but also from Muslims who threaten his life. Today, he lives in hiding because of the death threats. Front-line workers request prayer for his safety.
