The cost of following is much greater than back home. On her birthday, one of our local sisters blew out the candles on her cake and said that her one wish is that her mother and father would also believe, and she wished we would pray for this. Many fellow followers are the only ones in their family, and they face strong opposition, even isolation, because of their decisions. But they are confident in the love of the Father, and continue to trust what they know to be true. Here, joining one family many times means that you leave another.
Please pray for this sister, that she would stay encouraged and continue to be a light to others in her family.
