Rebecca at Bethesda
In 2019, Rebecca, her husband, and their three children were kidnapped by rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
She managed to escape with her youngest child, but her husband and older children haven’t been seen since. Upon returning to her home village, her in-laws blamed her for the kidnappings and then kicked her off her land, leaving her destitute. Because of the severe psychological pressures she endured, Rebecca developed traumatic mutism. A Christian trauma ministry has worked with Rebecca for the last two years, and she has now regained her ability to speak and is active in leading prayer ministry in her local church. More than 100 armed groups operating in the DRC target Christians like Rebecca.
