LOVING MUSLIMS TOGETHER

Perseverance & Love: A Salvation Story

Loving Muslims Together / Thursday, November 12, 2020

 

I met a woman in one of the gyms in the city and struck up a conversation. We quickly became friends.

As our friendship grew, I started sharing my faith with her, but she wasn’t interested at all and showed discomfort.

However, I continued telling her about my faith, my church and my activities and involvement there. She was critical of what she called “wasted time", but I kept praying for her. She, being from a Muslim background, did not make sharing very natural.

An Answer to Prayer

One time as I was driving home from work and asking God why He wasn’t moving in this person, I received a phone call from her.

She wanted to know when I was coming home. Then she told me that she would like to come over and read the Bible with me. Needless to say, my excitement was great, and I arrived home in no time!

We started reading the Bible, and I tried to answer her barrage of questions, late into the night. This continued for days. Her eagerness was amazing as she would jot down answers on her Bible or notebook or argue with me if my answer wasn’t convincing, so I had to resort to commentaries.

Later, she joined a Bible study that I was part of, and her questions continued.

Then she joined a church, and began to attend different Bible studies and seminars, and was spending many hours with Christians.

Praise God! He did bring her to Himself within a year or so, after a supernatural physical healing.

Full Circle: One Sows, One Waters

I invited my friend once to a church function, where we met someone, who, after a few minutes of looking intently at my friend, finally recognized her as one of the seekers from years before; she related to us how she had been praying for around 20 years for my friend!

It was a full circle, the sower and the one who watered met to celebrate the new life that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have produced in this precious soul.

Praise God for His amazing and continued work in people; the prayers of the saints are not wasted but produce fruit in His time!


ACCESS 25

Imagine if you didn't have access to Jesus? Imagine if you were prevented from learning, discovering and considering Jesus' claims?

Muslims coming to Canada as immigrants & refugees have not had access - to Bibles, to Churches, to Christian friends. They've never heard the stories of Jesus. They've never had freedom to consider, question, wonder...

Loving Muslims Together is a network of individuals, churches, ministries that exists to offer ACCESS. Our vision is that every Christ-follower and every church community would press into the call to join Jesus Christ in giving access to all those who've never had a chance.

Your gift of $25 will provide ACCESS, by supporting the Loving Muslims Together Network (LMT). LMT provides ACCESS through initiatives such as "Loving a Mosque Community Together", the Bridges Courses (now offered on-line) & Prayer blogs and letters. 

Give the gift of ACCESS today!
