Juma met with his pastor secretly after coming to Christ, afraid that his Muslim family would find out about his conversion. When his wife eventually found some of his Christian books, she immediately called his brothers, all radical Muslims. His brothers burned the books, beat Juma and threatened him. When word spread that he was a Christian, Juma was completely rejected by his relatives, neighbours and friends. He also lost his job. “No one will hire him, as no one is willing to give an apostate work,” a VOM worker said. Pray for Juma and others like him, who have lost family and friends for the sake of Christ.
