Christian Convert Hopes in the Lord

Khalda, a young Iraqi Christian who was forced to flee his family and his country, is now growing in faith as he hopes in the Lord. When his father urged him to get married and drop out of school, Khalda insisted on finishing school and also became a follower of Jesus Christ. “I started knowing the Lord and going to church,” he said. But after learning that Khalda had left Islam and placed his faith in Christ, his family began to beat him. Khalda said discrimination against Christians is common in the city where he lived. Other believers then helped him escape from Iraq, and he now lives in another country. “Now, I’m going in faith,” he said. “Although I might suffer, I feel happy because I know that the Lord has defeated this world!” Pray that Khalda will continue to grow in faith and be used by the Lord to reach others. Also pray for other Christian converts from Islam who are facing persecution.
