Church Christians evicted. Convert harassed, fired. Islamists attack churches, abduct children.

For 15 years, Pastor Mahesh Mukhiya has led a congregation of 70 Christians for worship and fellowship in a rented house in their village. In September 2023, Hindu extremists threatened the owner of the rented house, demanding he cancel the rental agreement. After a second threat, the landlord agreed to evict the congregation. Pastor Mahesh searched for a new building in which the Christians could meet, but the extremists had issued warnings throughout the village. For now, the church is considering options such as splitting into smaller groups or renovating and reinforcing the pastor’s house so that the church can meet on the roof.

Muhammad placed his trust in Christ two years ago. When his employer recently learned of Muhammad’s decision to follow Christ, he began to harass him. After Muhammad asked his employer to stop the harassment, Muhammad’s boss forced him to work 14-hour shifts and ultimately fired him. Muhammad is now looking for a new job.

In February 2024, Islamic insurgents with the self-proclaimed Islamic State (ISIS) in Mozambique destroyed 18 churches and killed many people in a sustained attack against Christians in the northern part of the country. The Islamists recorded videos of themselves destroying Christian symbols, including crosses. More than 700,000 people, most of them Christians, have been displaced by radical Islamic militants in the Cabo Delgado province of northern Mozambique. One Christian leader said that the church is currently experiencing “a moment of tribulation.”
