Syrian Christian Shares Christ While Serving Muslims

[260] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Church Leader in Turkey.

A Syrian church leader in Turkey has been serving his community during the coronavirus pandemic by transporting sick people to the hospital. One of those he transported — and even escorted to the coronavirus care unit — was a church member’s 70-year-old father. As the man recovered in the hospital for 17 days, he thought about how Christians had cared for him even though he was a committed Muslim. When he was released from the hospital, he asked the Christian leader to pray with him as he placed his faith in Christ. Thank God for the way He is working in difficult times and for the committed Christians who are reaching out in love to others.

Thank You that Your Spirit is moving and convicting hearts to the truth.
