In Peace As Christians

When “Samuel” and his wife were baptised in Bangladesh on 2nd of February, to mark their decision to leave Islam and follow Christ, they were attacked by local people when they returned home that evening. An imam slapped the wife’s face in front of their two young children and the family were threatened that they would be expelled from the village, where they are the only Christians, When two other Christians heard of this and told the police, officers visited the village and warned the community not to harass Samuel and his family, because every citizen has the right to practise their own faith in Bangladesh. Thank the Lord for action by the police, which is quite unusual is a Muslim-majority context. Pray that the family will be allowed to live in peace as Christians.
