(Open Doors USA)— “They threatened to kill me, and had God not protected me, they would have succeeded.”
The “they” in *Abdul’s story are not Islamic jihadist group Boko Haram that terrorizes Christians and churches in West Africa, fiercely attempting to eradicate Christianity. “They” are Abdul’s family.
When Abdul left his tribal religion of Islam and committed his life to Christ in 2000, his Muslim family felt and acted like he had just pointed a challenging dagger straight at them. Abdul’s family (part of the ethnic Kotoko group spread over Cameroon, Chad and Nigeria) always took pride in the fact that they were one of the few tribes in their region of Cameroon with no known Christians.
“When all their spells and curses with the help of the local medicine man failed, they tried to kill me themselves.”
