A previous post told about Sarah, a girl from a Christian family in Egypt. In September 2011, when she was 14, Sarah was kidnapped by radical Muslims.
Most Muslims in Egypt would never think of kidnapping anyone. But some extreme Muslims kidnap Christian girls and try to make them become Muslims.
After Sarah was kidnapped, her father filed a missing person report with the police. The next month, radical Muslims said that Sarah had become a Muslim and had willingly married a Muslim man.
But Christians know that kidnapped girls are often forced to marry Muslims. Some Egyptian girls who have escaped kidnappers have told how Muslims tried to make them convert to Islam, the religion of Muslims.
A recent report from a VOM contact in Egypt said, “Sarah is still kidnapped. Please keep praying for her.”
Others to Pray For
- At least 24 Egyptian girls were kidnapped around the same time that Sarah was taken.
