Sisters Beaten, Nearly Killed by Father

[178] prayers in [10] nations have been posted for Renee and Rebecca.

Renee (22) and Rebecca (19) are half-sisters. Their father has four wives and practices animistic sorcery. Years ago, Renee’s mother was unable to conceive, so she went to a Christian outreach hoping for a miracle. There she placed her faith in Christ and received prayer; later she became pregnant and gave birth to Renee. Renee’s father was not pleased when his wife took Renee to church. Renee’s half-sister, Rebecca, became a Christian while training at a hair salon with someone who sang worship songs. Rebecca’s father told her that if she wanted to continue living in his house, she would have to perform demonic rituals. Both Rebecca and Renee refused to perform the rituals, so he declared he would kill them both and sacrifice them to local spirits. He then beat them severely, but they escaped. They told a front-line worker that having hope in eternal life through Jesus was worth what they have suffered.
