Tanzania: Andrew’s Temptation

Andrew, a youth in Tanzania, was raised in a Christian family. But he did not really have a strong faith in God. So when a radical Muslim leader told him, “If you come to Islam, you will become super rich,” Andrew foolishly listened to the man.

Andrew began to do more and more evil deeds to please the radical Muslim. He lied to his parents and set their house on fire twice. But when the man told him to attack his parents, Andrew refused, repented, and turned to Christ. Now Muslims in the area want to harm him. (The photo of Andrew above is disguised to hide his identity from enemies.) Pray for Andrew and for other youth in places where they are tempted to join violent groups.
