While he was injured, his Muslim wife divorced him, taking two of their young children with her and leaving their two teenage children behind who had also put their faith in Christ. Two days after the attack, Yusuf succumbed to his injuries.

ICC connected with a local pastor to bring aid to the older children in the midst of their grief. We helped provide them with rent, food, clothing, and transportation to and from the courthouse where their father’s case is ongoing.

“We have found love amongst the few believers on the island and our faith has been encouraged. Thank you very much for the food shopping, rent, and pocket money for use,” the eldest son expressed.

The younger brother shared, “My heart is overwhelmed by your love and care. The Lord brought you from nowhere to just help us after the attack on our father. We are spurred to continue trusting in Christ by your concern, and we promise to remain in the Lord for the rest of our lives. May God bless you for giving sacrificially to our cause.”
