He went from training suicide bombers to becoming a Christian dedicated to the Gospel. Mollah (name changed for security) demonstrates the power of the Holy Spirit working through the Bible to change lives.
“He would teach them about the suicide vests,” says Bruce Allen of FMI, “how to detonate and all this sort of stuff. And when he got his hands on a Bible, it changed his life radically. He gave up his militant Islamic views. And now he says, ‘I fully expect to give my life not because I’m wearing a suicide vest, and will blow people up for the sake of radical Islam. But I give my life now to Christ to share the Gospel with my friends, with my neighbors, with my family.’”
Today, he not only distributes Bibles, but also shares Christ from Scripture to the people in Pakistan.
Twice as Far campaign
The campaign will end on February 29, but FMI has announced that any funds over the original matching number of $50,000 will now be matched up to another $50,000. That means the campaign could receive up to an additional $100,000 in matching funds.
“That is so exciting,” Allen says, “when we know that these Bibles are going to some of the darkest areas of the world spiritually. And yet there’s such a hunger for the Bible. It’s just the people in these areas have severely limited access to it.”
These funds will go towards the distribution of both print and digital Bibles, both of which individually cost about seven dollars. Allen points out that while in the West Christians may own multiple Bible, in many countries one Bible “owns” many readers. So any size gift will have a big impact.
