Two Muslim Friends Become Brothers in Christ

[289] prayers in [19] nations have been posted for Syamusudini and Muhindo.

Syamusudini began sharing the gospel with friends at school after being rejected by his Muslim family and moving in with a local pastor. One of his friends, Muhindo, listened carefully and soon decided that he, too, would follow Christ. Since he didn’t speak Arabic, Muhindo had never understood the Muslim prayer services, but he understood the words of Jesus. Like his friend Syamusudini, Muhindo was rejected by his family. When his father learned of his Christian faith, he came after Muhindo with a machete. Muhindo then fled to his friend, where he was welcomed as part of the family. “I am a new creation, and I understand the one I pray to,” he said. Pray for Muhindo and Syamusudini as they mature in faith, and pray that their families will also come to know Christ.
