He Paid With His Life

Nineteen-year-old Shigo, living in Kobane, Syria, had converted from Islam to Christianity. He paid for this decision with his life when Islamic State militants attacked the town on 25 June and executed him as an apostate from Islam. At least 145 other people were killed in Kobane that that. Other believers who knew Shigho refused to be daunted by his martyrdom and sent the massage to concerned Christian friends outside the country. “Don’t worry about us. Even if they were to cut our heads off ten times we would still say that Jesus is Lord!” Pray that their courageous witness will draw other to the Lord.
