Missions, The Persecuted Church Across the World, Whats On

Ex-teacher of Islam who became Christian killed – October 17th 2019

World Watch Monitor,  October 11, 2019 

Friends of a 40-year-old Egyptian who converted from Islam to Christianity believe his premature death on 4th October is linked to numerous threats he received from his family.

Before Amr Hussein Mohamed El-Sayeh died, he told friends that his family threatened to kill him.

His family did not hold a funeral for him; instead El-Sayeh was buried in a charity cemetery for the poor.  El-Sayeh had left his job teaching Islamic studies in March 2019.

He told his friend that he had watched Christian satellite TV.   “Watching these programmes made him want to know more about the truth of Islam and to read more of the Bible and to compare it and pray.”  On 13 April, he was secretly baptized into the Christian faith.

“He was a very brave man. He loved Christ very much. He kept faith till his last breath and refused to renounce his new faith. He was martyred in the name of Jesus Christ.”
