Muslims in Malawi are staging rallies and making threats as many are placing faith in Christ.
A front-line worker said, “We have seen an unusual move of the Holy Spirit as Muslims are putting their trust in Christ in large numbers.” In response, Muslim groups throughout Malawi are mobilizing to convince those who have converted to Christianity to return to Islam, and they are threatening new believers to choose between following Christ or being killed. “They have declared this a fight, and they are asking every Muslim to take this seriously because their territory has been invaded by Christianity,” the front-line worker shared. Amid this opposition, believers in Malawi are standing firm in Christ. “I am not afraid at all. The fire of the gospel has been lit in the Yao Land, and no gates of hell will stop it,” the worker said. Pray for wisdom and boldness for these believers as they face increased hostility from those who wish to silence their witness for Christ.
