Deaf Girl Beaten by Her Family for Her Faith

Central Asia (Mission Network News) A young Deaf girl in Central Asia who we’ll call Saida was recently hospitalized after her family learned about her Christian faith and beat her.

Rob Myers with DOOR International shares what happened: “The screams she emitted caused the neighbors to call the police. When the police came, the police saw it was her family beating her and they said, ‘Well, this is a family issue, so we won’t get involved.’ The family then realized they kind of had immunity to continue to beat her, so they continued to do so to the point where she had to be brought eventually to the hospital in intensive care.”

The latest report from Open Doors USA is that Saida’s family threatened to beat her again once she’s released from the hospital. But members of the local church were hoping to intercept her before family members could.
