Two years ago, extremist Muslims launched attacks on Christians in the community where Isayas lives. They torched Christians’ crops, homes and possessions and destroyed the church where Isayas and others worshiped Christ. The Christians fled the area but later returned and bought land on which to rebuild their church. However, the small group did not have enough money to construct a new building. Front-line workers, with the help of the global body of Christ, provided them with funding to rebuild. “It was like a miracle to us,” Isayas said. “We did not expect that we would be able to rebuild the church soon. But nothing is impossible with God, and He gave us funds.” Isayas and the other leaders in his church request prayers that they will be able to continue sharing the Good News despite persecution.
