EGYPT

Christian Girl Abducted – Whereabouts Still Unknown –
After working 14 hours in the fields, Saber, an Egyptian Christian, had his plans of relaxation interrupted by a knock on his door. It was his neighbor´s teenage son who wanted to buy some hay. Having no energy to fetch the hay, Saber sent his 16-year-old daughter, Suzanne, to get the hay from his backyard. She never returned, and Saber suspects the teenager forcibly converted and married her. Our contact reports Saber has forgiven his daughter´s abductor but desperately wants to know where Suzanne is and how she is living. Pray Saber´s Christ-like forgiveness will soften the hearts of his Muslim neighbors and they will not only return Suzanne to her home, but want to know the God who forgives. Romans 12:20

Azeri Officials Deprive Christian Baby of Name
Three-month-old Ilya Eyvazov has no official name. Local authorities in the town of Aliabad at first refused to issue a birth certificate when they saw the baby´s name was the Russian form of Elijah. After a month, Novruz Eyvazov, the baby´s father, succeeded only in securing a birth certificate that left his son´s name blank. Considered part of a “foreign” religious sect, the three Baptist congregations in Aliabad face ongoing harassment from the local government, which has refused them official church registration for the past 13 years. Pray the Holy Spirit will move in power to overcome the spiritual darkness in Azerbaijan and bring unity among the people. Ezekiel 22:30

Hindu extremists in the Southern state of Andhra Pradesh attacked at least four Christians in the last three weeks, including a beating of three Dalits and a threat to have their government benefits withdrawn. On September 29th, a group of Hindu extremists barged into a church in Nizamabad district and manhandled Pastor Kavalla Shadrak late in the evening. On September 22nd, a mob of about 40 people surrounded three Dalit Christians in Nandiwaddeman village while three people beat them. When the church pastor went to the village head to report the attack, he refused to listen to him – then allegedly held a meeting with village elders to accuse him of forcibly converting the villagers. Pray God will strengthen Christians in Andhra Pradesh to remain faithful to Jesus in spite of all opposition. 2 Thessalonians 1:11, 12

La république islamique d’Iran ne cesse par la voie de ses médias officiels de dénoncer les mauvais traitements à l’encontre des musulmans dans le monde. C’est pourquoi, il nous a paru opportun de signaler les conditions réservées aux Chrétiens et surtout aux apostats sous le régime des mollahs.

En premier, signalons que l’apostasie, c’est-à-dire le fait de renoncer à l’Islam, est sanctionnée par la mort en vertu de la charia. Si la situation des Chrétiens est moins radicale, celle des convertis reste réellement très préoccupante car la conversion est considérée comme une forme d’apostasie.
Les services secrets des mollahs viennent d’arrêter un couple de chrétiens dans la ville de Mash-had (haut lieux de pèlerinage où se trouve la tombe de l’imam Reza). Des agents « non identifiés » ont arrêté Reza Montazami et son épouse Fereshteh en récupérant toute la littérature chrétienne qui se trouvait chez eux. La grand-mère a récupéré leur fillette de six ans, Christine, qui avait été laissée seule dans l’appartement familial après l’arrestation de Reza et Fereshteh. La police officielle a fini par découvrir que les Montazami étaient détenus chez les pasdarans (gardiens de la révolution).

Les policiers ont expliqué que c’était normal puisqu’il s’agissait de convertis. La famille qui s’est rendue au siège des pasdarans de Mash-had n’a pas pu en savoir plus sauf que les interrogatoires continuaient. Selon certaines sources, les pasdarans reprochent au mari de ne plus utiliser son prénom Reza. Pour information, Fereshteh est la fille du révérend Mehdi Dibaj, lui aussi converti, qui avait été arrêté et condamné à mort pour apostasie. Son cas est célèbre, car sous la pression internationale il avait été libéré, et ensuite assassiné alors qu’il se rendait à l’anniversaire de sa fille.
Les Montazami prenaient soin d’un temple protestant qui avait été fermé au lendemain de la révolution islamique et dans lequel se retrouvaient quelques convertis. Le pasteur de Mash-had, Hossein Soudmand, lui-même converti, avait aussi été assassiné. De nombreuses familles converties ont quitté la république islamique et obtenu l’asile dans divers pays du monde, spécialement en Europe du Nord, USA, Canada ou Australie.
