There she was, in church


There she was, in church

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!

Why did the Muslim lady come to church?

It was her second time in a church service.

A modern Muslim woman, modestly dressed but with no head covering, she was nonetheless diligent in her prayers. She always spoke positively and confidently about her Islamic faith.

And there she was, in church.

It was a guest service and she had been invited, but this is not enough to explain her presence. Thousands of her neighbours were not there, but they had not received personal invitations.

Only a few of those who did get invitations had come along.

The deciding factor for her was that she had a friend. A long term, no nonsense, Christian friend of her own age who had worked with her for years and who shared life with her. Not an evangelist or a preacher, but a real friend.

Her verdict on the service:

It was really good. I loved the music. The teaching was really clear and easy to follow. I am definitely coming again.
