MALAYSIA – Fears for safety of abducted church pastor; Malaysian Christians call for prayer

Christians in Malaysia are calling on believers around the world to pray, after a church pastor was kidnapped in broad daylight. Pastor Raymond Koh was taken from his car in a residential area by five masked men on the morning of 13 February, in what appeared to be a carefully planned operation. There has been no ransom demand and no reported progress in the criminal investigation despite CCTV footage of the kidnap being made available to police.

Described to Barnabas Fund as “a compassionate and very bold man of God”, Pastor Raymond works amongst the marginalised urban poor in Petaling Jaya, near Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia: Please pray for the family of Pastor Raymond Koh, who was abducted in Malaysia more than a fortnight ago. His son, Jonathan, has now filed a second police report on suspicion he has been murdered as no ransom demand has been made to his family. (Source: World Watch Monitor)


Rooney Rebit aged 41 was born into a Christian family whose parents converted to Islam when he was eight. In 1999 he embraced Christ and was baptised but his identity card continued to state he was a Muslim. Recently a court has upheld his right to freedom to change religion which is a great precedent. Oh that this was true in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran and many other majority Muslim countries!
