Eleven-year-old Hussein understands what it means to suffer for Christ. Two years ago, he began wearing a cross necklace to his school in Turkey as a symbol of his love for Jesus.
Most of the people in Turkey are Muslims. Many are not serious about their faith. But most believe that all Turks should be Muslims, whether they are serious or not. People who leave Islam to follow Christ are often treated harshly. (Islam is the religion of Muslims.) Hussein’s Muslim family became Christian after his father, Hakeem, searched for the truth in the Bible.
