Pray for Ceger and Naza, Who Fled Their Home After Death Threats

[270] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Ceger and Naza.

After years of threats, attacks and ostracism by their Muslim families, “Ceger” and his wife, “Naza,” finally had to leave their home in Iraq. The Kurdish couple, who became believers in 2008, faced opposition from family members as soon as they converted to Christianity. Although they were determined to stay in Iraq and share the love of Christ with their families, death threats from Naza’s brother earlier this year persuaded the couple that it was time to leave. Other believers helped arrange their move to another country in the Middle East, where they have since joined an evangelical church and shared about the importance of spreading the gospel among Muslims. “They have not stopped sharing their faith in spite of the cost that came along with this in their homeland,” a VOM contact said. Pray for them as they continue to adjust, and thank God that he has walked with them in the valley of the shadow of death.
