This truth was too powerful to ignore and overflowed his soul. He decided to contact us through our Facebook page and began talking to one of our workers. After several conversations, Muki asked for a Bible. We then reached out to someone on our team close by his city to give him the Bible and to answer some questions about Islam.

After several months, he still has a great desire to know more about Jesus and has decided to follow Him. A few days after his decision, he was encouraged to share the Gospel with his brother. His brother went directly to their father and told on him: “he had left Islam and has changed religion.” The family decided to ask Muki to leave the house immediately. Muki felt sad and didn’t understand his family’s reaction or his new circumstance.

The worker who is discipling him was able to encourage him and be with him during a hard circumstance. The house church helped him to find a room to rent and enabled him to settle down, while they were encouraging him to love his family and pray for them.

Then a miracle happens after two weeks of hard prayer and supporting Muki in this difficult situation, his family contacted him and told him to return home. What a big surprise he had when he realized that his brother had started to have questions and curiosity about Muki’s new faith. At once, the two brothers met with our worker to read and study the Bible.

Pray:

  • Please pray for Muki that his faith will be strengthened and that despite the trials he will follow the Lord Jesus. It’s not easy for them socially.
  • Thank you for praying for Muki’s brother who truly knows the truth of the Gospel and has experienced a radical change in his life.
