In our country in North Africa, the presidential elections don’t have an official date set but are scheduled for 2019. We are concerned about the future of the country and at the same time, confident in the Lord for help. God is good to His Church in this beautiful African land, we move forward in His work by the grace of the Lord.
We want to share a testimony with you in hopes that you pray for our sister in faith, along with us.
Marla* is a believer that we disciple. She came to know the Lord when her daughter was healed through prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, this event changed her life. Marla is married and has kept her faith a secret from her husband and most people for five years.
Recently, her husband discovered that she was a Christian because of the changes in her life. Her husband demanded that she renounce her faith and return to being Muslim. Marla did not agree with her husband’s request, she was kicked out and had to stay with her parents for a long time.
She decided to return home so that she could be with her children again. Marla decided to pretend to her husband that she is praying the Muslim prayer; while in her heart she prays to the Lord Jesus Christ to use it as an instrument to touch her husband’s heart. He is always watching her and questioning if she has indeed left the faith in Jesus Christ.
Thank you for praying for Marla, may the Lord give her strength and protect her, let us remember that her life is in danger if her husband discovers that she is following the Lord Jesus. Pray for her husband to open his heart to Jesus Christ.
