Kidnapped in Pakistan
Fifteen year old Nadia lives in Pakistan where the cost of following Jesus may include imprisonment, torture and death.
But that didn't stop Nadia. Until last February, she loved to get up at five AM to pray and read her Bible before her work began. She would sing God's songs, even among her Muslim friends.
Many months ago, she, like many other committed Christian girls, was kidnapped from her home - forced into a car by three armed Muslim brothers.
Now, her heart-broken parents wonders where they have hidden her - and if she still sings her favorite songs. They have only been told that one of the abductor, Maqsood Ahmed, has legally married her and converted her to Islam.
Apparently, his family bribed the police. And it is no secret that the court system is just as corrupt.
Please pray that God...
comfort her family,
bring them back together,
- give Nadia needed encouragement and strength to persevere each day,
- use her faith to bring God's love to the Muslim community,
- bring to her mind the Scriptures she loves
- enable her to endure and triumph no matter what happens.
