Persecution Update, September 2019 - MALI

9 - Sept 2019 Beatrice Stockly.jpg

In 2012, Beatrice Stockly was abducted by radical Muslims in the West African country of Mali. She was accused of sharing her Christian faith with Muslim women and children throughout the city of Timbuktu. When she was released, Beatrice was ordered to leave Mali and never return. While home in Switzerland, her family pleaded with her not to go back to Mali. However, she insisted on taking the risk for the Gospel’s sake and returned to Mali. In 2016 Islamic extremists kidnapped Beatrice from her home a second time. It has now been two years without any word of her well-being. Please lift up Beatrice before the Throne of Grace for God’s strength and courage in her captivity.
