Young Christian convert attacked with acid in Egypt

by Staff
May 5, 2010

(christiansunite.com) - Several weeks ago, militant Muslims armed with acid attacked Dina El-Gohary, a 15-year-old Egyptian convert to Christianity. Dina has faced serious harassment since her father, Maher El-Gohary (57), declared his conversion to Christianity and his desire to change the religious designation on his official documents.

Dina and her father, who have been in hiding in Alexandria due to death threats, had ventured outside briefly to buy some bottled water when Muslims attacked her. Dina's jacket was set ablaze by the acid, but her father was able to put out the flames before it could reach her skin.

Dina has been shaken by the attack, saying, "Ever since then I am terrorized to go out in the street, with or without my father." (Source: Assyrian International News Agency)

Pray that Dina will be encouraged and strengthened by God's sustaining grace. Pray for protection for her and her father. Pray that they will both grow in Christlikeness through their trials (James 1:2-4). Pray that persecutors throughout Egypt will be challenged by the consistent testimony of Christ's followers and be drawn to Him.
