Christians Driven Out of Home

In Western Bangladesh, Christian grandparents were driven out of their home by their two sons.

Ishmael Sheikh, 70, and his wife Rahima Khatun, 55, were baptized on Nov. 9. By
the end of the month, Sheikh told Compass, Muslim neighbors in Kathuly village,
near Gangni town in Meherpur district, had compelled their two sons to expel
them from their house. Meherpur district is 270 kilometers (168 miles) west of

"Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." (Luke 12:51-53, ESV)

Please pray that the Lord will provide for this couples' every need.
