MIDDLE EAST: Parents of Convert Shoot Relative in Leg

“Please pray that my parents will calm down and surrender to the Lord,” requested Amir, an Iraqi convert to Christianity. He recently learned that his enraged parents had shot his brother-in-law in the leg in retaliation for Amir and his family converting to Christianity and fleeing the country. Other members of Amir’s family have had to flee for their lives after converting from Islam. Despite the pressure and danger, Amir prays that more family and friends will come to know Christ as their Saviour. He also hopes that someday churches will be allowed to exist openly in every part of Iraq, including in Karbala, a city considered sacred in Shia Islam. “I hope someday we can go back and worship the Lord freely there,” he said.
