Abdu became a Christian last year, but needs our encouragement and prayers. Could you send him a message, picture, Bible verse, video or piece of encouragement to let him know he is not alone?
Abdu’s story is heartbreaking. He’s from a Muslim family, but after his mum and dad separated, and his mum became a Christian, they had to leave the town he grew up in. Facing pressure for her beliefs, Abdu’s mum took him and his brother to stay with a relative. But not long after, she left to try and find a new life for them in another country. But without their father’s legal permission, Abdu and his brother couldn’t go anywhere. They were stuck, and his mum didn’t return. It’s been two years since Abdu has seen his mum, and since he has lived on the streets and become a Christian himself. For a while he went back to live with his dad, but because of his faith, Abdu’s father told him ‘If you are not a Muslim, you are not my son. If you don’t choose Islam, you will die’. Abdu ran away again, and is now being looked after and supported by local Christians. But he’s facing pressure from his family, and is worried about his future.
You can send a short message, reflection, video or picture using the form on this page. It needs to be something that will let Abdu know that we are praying for him and remind him that we’re cheering him on. So, what could you send – a prayer, your favourite passage or even the lyrics from a worship song?
Still stuck – how about one of these?
