(car-NAH-tuh-kuh) – Jalal submitted his life to Jesus in August. He has been commuting two and a half hours twice a month to read the Bible with some believers and learn about his newfound God. Please pray that he will be able to find a healthy church and believers in his own city. He is afraid to try a church where he lives because his father is a devout Hindu. If he finds out that Jalal is reading the Bible, he will kick him out of the house. Give thanks to God that Jalal heard Jesus’ voice and surrendered to Him! Pray that he will be able to discern the Lord’s voice for where to go to fellowship with believers in his city and if he should tell his father about Christ, risking being ostracized from his household. Pray that he will know Jesus like a friend. “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand” (John 10:27-28 ESV).
