In spite of the severe wave of persecution by the authorities since the summer of 2017 during which time 13 churches have been closed down, God still at work here in Algeria! We at House of Hope have held all the summer camps that we planned to hold.
The Lord is bringing His people out of darkness into His marvelous light! We baptized 10 new believers, including a former Imam (Muslim religious teacher), a true fundamentalist. Read the former Imam’s testimony . . .
“After nine years as a Muslim Imam, I always taught and believed I was on the right path. One day I came across a Christian TV channel in Arabic, my mother tongue. I was fascinated by the teachings. My Islamic beliefs were being challenged. I continued to watch those programs, checking all that was said about Islam, the Koran, and the life of Prophet Mohammed. But the fact is, I could not find any conflict in what they were saying. I had no answers that satisfied my soul.
“My doubts became deeper and deeper. I had many restless nights. Finally, I decided to get in touch with Algerian believers with the help of the TV program.
“I had many questions. They helped me answer my questions and explained to me the way of salvation in the Bible. After many meetings, I decided to give my life to Jesus. Now I have peace and have a true relationship with God.”
