I have written about Omar before. He has been saved about a year. He comes from a devout Muslim family. His sister, Mamata has been with us for a few years now. She has been faithful, even under much persecution. It is not physical, but much mental and verbal attacks. A few months back, Omar stopped being faithful, which was very unusual. We realized it was because of family and friends that he stopped coming to church and activities. I made a huge effort to be closer to him and to include him more than ever before. It seemed to work for awhile and then the same thing happened again. He missed our discipleship times and missed church. Mamata told my wife that he won’t even talk to her about it. He is getting great pressure, and he is cracking. He called me tonight. He told me he has missed because he was trying to find work for school(that could only be some of it). He wants to talk with me soon. I don’t think he has all the money to go to school and it could be because his family doesn’t want to send him because of his decision to follow Jesus. Please pray for him, He needs it.

    Be sure to let Omar know that we are praying for him and we are half way around the world. People are praying for him, even though they have never met him, but he is a brother in Christ even though he is several thousand miles away. Let me know if their is anything else I can do.
