Brick Kiln Owner Beats Christian Laborer

Hamza, who was raised as a Christian in a family indebted to a brick kiln owner, didn’t experience persecution until he brought a Muslim to church. The kiln owner had no problem with Hamza attending church, but their relationship changed drastically when Hamza brought a Muslim coworker to church and the man accepted Christ. Shortly after that happened, the kiln owner met Hamza at the entrance to his church and beat him so badly that his shoulder was broken. Despite the injury and his treatment by the owner, Hamza continued to work toward paying off his debts to the owner. Two years ago, Hamza was sold to another brick kiln owner, where he continues to work to pay off his debt. About two months ago, two men on a motorcycle stopped Hamza on the way home from the market to beat him again. Hamza said they were acting on orders from his former owner, who is still angry at him. Hamza asks us to pray that God will change the hearts of those who are angry at him.
