Fatima lived in a Muslim country. She became a Christian as a teenager and as a response started secretly blogging under an alias which translates as the word ‘contented’.
In response to the massive amount of abuse generated by her blog posts she wrote the following message:
‘The messiah says blessed are the persecuted,
and by God, I am, unto death, a Christian’.
Not long after this, she told her family of her choice to follow Jesus. An argument broke out. The next day, her brother stormed into her room. Fatima found him sitting on top of her laptop. There on the desktop were her writings, her thoughts and her prayers. He’d seen them all. He was angry. She managed to lock herself in her room and wrote what would be her final blog asking for prayer.
Not long after, her brother returned. He burned her face, her back, cut out her tongue and killed her.
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
