This is Talitha. She’s 17 years old and from a country in Central Asia. On 5 December 2021 she made the most important decision of her life – she kneeled and gave her heart to the Lord Jesus.
In the country where she lives (to protect her identity, we can’t say which country), choosing to follow Jesus can be really dangerous. So, when she knelt to say her prayer, she became a secret believer – she’s the only member of her family who is a Christian.
She’s worried what her parents or other family members will do if they find out that she is a Christian. But, being full of brave faith, she decided that she wanted to be baptised – which happened on 24 December!
Talitha is in a precarious position – but despite what her family might do, she’s chosen Jesus.
She knows little about the global church, so we’d love to send her a bunch of messages and prayers from young people in the UK to let her know she’s not alone. She needs your prayer support to know that she’s part of a global family, all cheering and spurring her on.
Could you send a message to Talitha? Write a prayer or short message for her in the box below we’ll make sure she receives it!
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
