As we’ve stated many times before, it’s absolutely humbling to see God’s hand at work here. We recently celebrated this fact with a number of baptisms. Unfortunately, I had a previous ministry engagement, so I didn’t see everything firsthand. Here is the account of a friend, Scott:
This past Saturday, there was a baptism service for some new believers from Afghanistan and Iran. One of them was a woman whose husband was killed in front of their three children (in Afghanistan) by his four brothers because they found out he had brought a Bible into the house. The most amazing and striking thing to me was the joy and enthusiasm that radiated from her face and voice. I think I would have been angry and bitter, but instead she is very much in love with Jesus and is passionately telling others about the reality of His love. PLEASE PRAY for all the new believers, especially the former Muslims, who face all kinds of discouragement and danger (physical, emotional, and spiritual).
