MIDDLE EAST: Christian Couple Flees Amid Threats


Joseph and Rama have fled their home in Syria after threats from family due to their marriage. Joseph is from a Christian background and Rama is a former Muslim who now follows Christ. When Rama's family learned of their marriage, they complained to a police officer. The officer beat Joseph and warned him to stay away from Rama. The couple then escaped to a neighboring country that also does not recognize marriage between a woman who is legally considered to be Muslim and a man who is not a Muslim. Joseph and Rama have now applied for resettlement to a Western country.

  • Pray for God's peace in their hearts while they wait.

  • Pray for their resettlement application to be accepted so they can move to a country where their marriage is legally recognized and where they can start a family.
