When Farah’s* dad was arrested he was asked to provide names of other Christians. The police told him that Farah could be put in prison if he didn’t do what they asked. But with remarkable bravery, he refused. Amazingly he was later released without charge, as long as he didn’t resume any evangelistic activities – otherwise his sentence would be death.
But Farah’s dad couldn’t stop telling others about Jesus. Farah and her family continued to be watched, and so they made the difficult decision to flee the country. It was too dangerous to stay.
Life in their new home is really hard. There’s a new language to learn, school and work are different, and Farah misses her friends. But despite all of this, the family know that sticking with Jesus was their only option.
Whilst in prison, Farah’s dad wrote small messages on his cell wall, to encourage other Christian prisoners. Will you do the same for Farah and her family? Could you write Farah a message to encourage her after her whole world has been torn apart? Use the form on this page to send a message and we’ll make sure it gets through to Farah.
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
