AFGHANISTAN: Christian Convert in Hiding from the Taliban

Nov 9, 2022 | VoM

When Ali was just 15, he rejected Islam and began searching for the one true God.

A friend provided him with a Bible, and by reading God’s Word, Ali found what he was looking for: the truth.

“I don’t know very much about Jesus,” Ali shared, “but I enjoy His presence every day, and I won’t give Him up for anything in the world!”

Since the Taliban’s takeover in August last year, Ali has been identified as an apostate – a convert from Islam – a crime that the Taliban consider worthy of death.

When Ali learned that the Taliban was searching for him, he fled. His neighbours later sent word to him that shortly after he fled, armed Taliban soldiers arrived looking for him.

Ali says that although he has the opportunity to flee to a safer country, he will remain in Afghanistan because he wants to be a witness to his fellow Afghans.

“I believe Jesus is alive and can protect me from all danger and hardships,” Ali says.
