When his wife discovered the young man’s Christian books, his conversion was revealed.
Juma met with his pastor secretly after coming to Christ, afraid that his Muslim family would find out about his conversion.
When his wife eventually found some of his Christian books, she immediately called his brothers, all radical Muslims. His brothers burned the books, beat Juma and threatened him. When word spread that he was a Christian, Juma was completely rejected by his relatives, neighbors and friends. He also lost his job. “No one will hire him, as no one is willing to give an apostate work,” a VOM worker said.
