Persecution Update December 2010: Afghanistan

afghanistan-mapDespite all the efforts to establish democracy and freedom in Afghanistan, radical Islamic law, sharia, is really the law of the land. That means Afghans who convert to Christ—as did 45-year-old Sayed Mossa—are under a death sentence. Arrested back in May, Mossa has been tortured and abused in prison without any charges or legal representation for six months. His case is now under review by a court in Kabul. Please pray for efforts to release this man and other believers also in prison or under threats because of their faith in Christ. Also pray for God to strengthen them by His grace while in prison.
