Recently, turmoil has gripped countries across the Muslim world. In these times of uncertainty, many wonder what will happen to our brothers and sisters already paying a high price for following Jesus.
But, in the midst of turmoil and uncertainty, God is miraculously at work!
Abdul* is an imam, a holy teacher of Islam, and a follower of Jesus. Not only is his conversion a miracle, so is what’s happened since!
After his conversion, Abdul kept his faith a secret, allowing him to remain an imam.
As an imam, he is required to preach in the local mosque. So when it is his turn to preach, he tells how the Koran speaks of Jesus as a great man, and that there is no one like Him.
He shares how the Koran speaks of Jesus as being holy, compassionate, a miracle-worker, and the person who went to heaven and will come back again one day. This makes Jesus unique and special even in Islam.
Some of his friends are now asking questions about Jesus as they get to know Him through Abdul. Even other imams are seeking to know more about Jesus!
Once, Abdul was asked jokingly, “Are you sure you aren’t a Christian?” Abdul simply replied, “I just love Jesus!”
Your support strengthens and encourages believers in many countries in order to advance the kingdom in places where faith in Christ truly costs the most!
