Living the Christian faith in secret

Before the Civil War exploded in Yemen Nadeen, a young woman in her late twenties had converted to Christianity. At University she had the opportunity to practice her religion. However, when she graduated, it was practically impossible for her to leave the house alone, as she had a strict Muslim family.

Through her Facebook account, she met other believers who created a group in which they shared their experiences and testimonies. “Online, we prayed together, and we asked the questions that we had about faith in Christ and God.” But Nadeen was also looking to experience the real community of local believers in Yemen and she used her work as an excuse to leave her house alone and be able to assist the community.
