How much would you risk to share your faith? Uncharted Ministries co-founder Tom Doyle says a new believer in Syria recently put her life on the line for Christ.
“We’re seeing so many young Muslims coming to faith in Christ, and they’re sharing their faith. God is using new believers; they’re spreading the Gospel rapidly throughout the Middle East,” he says.
“What we’re seeing today is a wave of holy boldness.”
When a Muslim woman we’ll call “Lydia” came to saving faith in Jesus, she immediately thought of her family. But not in the ways you might expect.
“She has a brother in the Islamic State [and] her brother is fighting with terrorists in Libya. She picks up the phone and calls him, and tells him she’s accepted Jesus as her Savior. He said, ‘Well, that distresses me and we will have to do something about this; I’m coming home.’ That next week she was baptized, and it wasn’t just her,” Doyle says.
“She had already led three other Sunni Muslims to faith in Christ. They were all baptized together.”
Lydia’s brother is still hunting for her, but thankfully she’s in a safe house. Pray for her continued protection, and pray the Lord will appear to her brother in a vision or dream. Pray he will understand God’s truth, and believe in Christ.
