Release International, Malaysia and Egypt
Malaysia Continue to pray for the family of Pastor Raymond Koh who was abducted off the street in Malaysia four years ago. His kidnapping has been blamed on Special Branch police.
Egypt Thank God that in Egypt, S2S group member Gehan has recovered from Covid-19 and has learnt about God’s love and provision through the support of her friends.
Egypt Pray for S2S group member Mariam, who lost her husband early in the pandemic. Her group helped her to start a small project making and selling face masks.
Egypt Please continue to pray for our Strength to Stand (S2S) women’s groups in Egypt. Pray that members of these support groups will continue to grow in confidence as friendships blossom.
Egypt Thank God that Release was able to provide food and other essentials for several hundred persecuted Christian families in Egypt at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.
Egypt Ask God to protect Christians in Egypt who have a Muslim background. Many suffer abuse or violence; some are even killed.
Egypt Pray for a young boy in Egypt who was recently beaten and robbed by a gang of youths – because his family had turned to Christ. They threatened to tell others of the family’s conversion if he reported the attack.
