Pray for Sudan

Sudan

Moses* was born to a successful Muslim businessman in Sudan. As a young man, he helped his father run the business. Sadly, the father died when he was 16 years old.

Moses' mother remarried after a short while, and he was sent to a state-run school for 'problematic' young people. Here, Moses faced disciplining and Islamic instruction. He endured regular beatings and hard labor.

After some time, Moses escaped. He found refuge for a few years in a separate town where he made ends meet by doing menial jobs.

One day in 2011, Moses walked past a church and noticed the cross. He unexpectedly felt "something stirring in him". He entered the building on an impulse, and was met by a church elder. They had a brief discussion about the Christian faith.

This one conversation led to a number of follow-up meetings. After two years of discussion, Moses accepted Christ. The regular discussions turned into discipleship sessions.

Moses was married to a Muslim woman, and for a while, she kept his faith a secret. However, eventually she told their family, and she left Moses. She said she would only return if he renounced his Christian faith.

Moses receives threats from his family, and has been forced to relocate multiple times.
