Deep hunger


Deep hunger

This is a real-life story of recent events from one of the local Mahabba groups in the Network. Names and details have been deliberately removed to protect the identity of those involved, but praise God - he is working in the lives of Muslims to reveal Jesus!

Friendship first

For those of you that have completed the Friendship first course, you will know that building relationships and strong friendships with Muslims is often the first step to sharing Jesus with them.

All friendships take time and energy to flourish, but the more Muslims I meet here where I am, the more I see a deep hunger for it and for assurance, support and encouragement.

It has not seemed difficult to find Muslim ladies keen to chat about faith, receive encouraging scripture and to pray with.

For this I am very thankful to God.

Last week I met for a coffee with a Muslim lady and our conversation turned very naturally to our beliefs and purpose in life.

I was able to share the gospel with her and talk about what following Jesus meant to me.

It was a very extraordinary moment in a very ordinary setting, flowing from a very real friendship.

Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and sensitive before God. That energy is Gods energy, an energy deep within you, God himself willing and working at what will give him the most pleasure.
— Philippians 2:13, The Message
