Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Jordanian Convert Threatened, Flees Country

A Christian convert from Islam was forced to move to another city and eventually leave the country after someone reported his conversion to authorities. After accepting Christ, Ammer’s family treated him badly, beating him and claiming he was insane. Someone also reported him to Jordanian authorities, causing legal problems.

When Ammer published a video criticizing Islam, both his family and the authorities threatened him again, prompting Ammer to leave the country for his own safety. “My life changed when I followed Jesus,” he said. “He filled my heart with love. I can see I am worshiping a living God who listens, loves, and doesn’t scare people off.”

Pray for Ammer, that he stays strong in the faith, has his needs met, and becomes reconciled to his family.
