We serve Christians around the world whose brave faith in Jesus means they are, beaten, threatened, imprisoned, tortured, falsely accused, disowned and hated.

Send a message to Talitha

pattern


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!

Guidelines

  • Write in simple English and keep it relatively short
  • Be encouraging and include one or two Bible verses (for security reasons, please do not use verses that refer to Israel, armies or war)
  • Show sensitivity – do not dwell on the recipient’s plight, or share about the blessings of life in your country.

For security

  • Do not mention Open Doors
  • Do not mention Islam
  • Do not refer to Israel, even when using Scripture. Also, do not use images, flags or maps of Israel, or Hebrew signs
  • Do not criticise the region’s religion or religious extremists, its government, judicial system or political leaders
  • Do not send money or make proposals to help
  • Do not add your address or any personal details bar name, age and where you are from in the message itself (it’s fine to include those in the later bits of the form if you want to get emails or postal mailings from us!).
