This is Talitha. She’s 17 years old and from a country in Central Asia. On 5 December 2021 she made the most important decision of her life – she kneeled and gave her heart to the Lord Jesus.
In the country where she lives (to protect her identity, we can’t say which country), choosing to follow Jesus can be really dangerous. So, when she knelt to say her prayer, she became a secret believer – she’s the only member of her family who is a Christian.
She’s worried what her parents or other family members will do if they find out that she is a Christian. But, being full of brave faith, she decided that she wanted to be baptised – which happened on 24 December!
Talitha is in a precarious position – but despite what her family might do, she’s chosen Jesus.
She knows little about the global church, so we’d love to send her a bunch of messages and prayers from young people in the UK to let her know she’s not alone. She needs your prayer support to know that she’s part of a global family, all cheering and spurring her on.
Could you send a message to Talitha? Write a prayer or short message for her in the box below we’ll make sure she receives it!
Your prayers are needed following yet another awful attack on Christians in Nigeria, in which a student was killed.
A summer camp for children and teenagers run by christians in Central Asia was raided by police and the camp leader was arrested and fined…
Pray now as almost 3,000 people have died and hundreds more have been injured in the disaster…
“We will not give up our faith; we believe that God will continue to reveal Himself to us and to these people…”
Aasif bravely led more than 30 people to believe in Jesus, but in the end he paid the ultimate price for his faith…
“Looking back, to be honest, we’re feeling nervous, fearful and worried, as it’s our first time to encounter this…“
“The frequency and scale of such attacks – which are systematic, violent – appear to have increased in the last several years…”
Been to a summer camp or festival? Did you know in some places it’s dangerous to host these kind of events, but, they are still happening…
Imagine being at school and getting called into the principal’s office where you face pressure to give up your faith in Jesus…
