Finding a Good Heart

[207] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Shaikh Adam.

​When a local Islamic leader saw a Christian helping people from different tribal and religious groups, he experienced Jesus’ transformational power. Sheikh Adam saw a VOM-supported front-line worker serving people from both evangelical and Orthodox churches in a Muslim-majority region, and he wondered why. The front-line worker told him, “This is what we’ve learned from Christ and the Bible.” Sheik Adam wanted that same kind of “good heart,” so he committed his life to Jesus. He invited the evangelist to his home to share, and twelve others also gave their lives to Christ. Today, the evangelist continues to visit this new house fellowship to teach them more about their new faith. Pray for the members of the new fellowship and also for the front-line worker.
