Encourage Zita From Cameroon

Zita had a Muslim father and a Christian mother. There was a lot of pressure from her Muslim relatives and Zita’s mother was eventually forced to give her up. Not long after, Zita’s mother died.

A year later her father also passed away. From then on Zita was passed back and forth between Christian and Muslim relatives. 

When she decided to follow Jesus at the age of 12, Zita experienced severe persecution. Her Muslim family regularly beat her and threatened to kill Zita if she didn’t convert to Islam.

Zita is now 15, and living in the care of a Christian family. She is still too afraid to go out after dark, and battles with recurring stomach aches. Doctors are yet to pin point the cause. Your support helped us provide relief aid for Zita.

“Temptation and persecution will come,” Zita said. “But God will give me the strength and I will never leave His way.”

We want to invite you to write a note of encouragement to Zita.

Please send cards and letters by 30 June to PO Box 51236 Tawa, Wellington 5249
