Prisoner of faith: Eva Abdullah

You can encourage Eva
by writing her a letter.
A teenager in Tanzania was recently sentenced to two years in prison after being accused of desecrating the Qur'an.

Eva Abdullah, 17, converted to Christianity from Islam three years ago. Her parents disowned her after her conversion and a group of radicals in her hometown of Bagamoyo tried to persuade her to renounce her Christian faith. When she refused, they falsely accused her of desecrating a Qur'an. Many Christian leaders were afraid to defend Eva because of the Muslim dominance in the district.

On July 26, Eva was sentenced to two years in prison by a judge who was allegedly bribed by the Islamic militants.

Please write a letter to Eva, reminding her that Christians around the world are concerned about her situation and are praying for her.

Mail your letters to:

Eva Abdullah
Bagamoyo District Prison
P.O. Box 92
Bagamoyo, Pwani

Please note: When writing a letter, never mention the name of the source of your information or the name of any organization such as Voice of the Martyrs or Prisoner Alert. It is not dangerous for a prisoner to receive letters from individuals, but if an organization is mentioned they may be accused of links with “foreign organizations” and receive harsher sentences. Also, please do not state anything negative about their government. For more information on letter writing, click here. To create a letter using phrases in Eva’s own language, please visit

  1. Hello Eva,

    Bwana wetu yuko pamoja nawe hata hapo ulipo.

    Mruhusu Kristo aendelee kuongoza hatua zako hadi uzima wa milele.

    Naomba kwamba macho, masikio na myoyo ya hao wanaokutesa vimfungukie Kristo.

    Warumi 8:28
    Nasi tunajua ya kuwa katika mambo yote Mungu hutenta kazi pamoja na wote wampendao, wale ambao wameitwa kufuatana na mapenzi yake. Mungu hufanya hivyo kwa faida yao.

    Naombea kwamba ukutane na uwepo wake Kristo siku ya leo.

    Namshukunru kwa upendo wako kwa Kristo.

    With Love,

    Jenny Carreno
