If you line up a row of dominoes on edge and then tip the last one forward, what happens? The whole row falls as the momentum of one carries on, right? That’s exactly what happened – in a spiritual sense – with Shareen and her family.
Uncharted Ministries’ Tom Doyle says he and his wife JoAnn met Shareen two decades ago in a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip. “Later, we were privileged to pray with her to faith in Christ,” he says.
You can read Shareen’s full story in the Doyles’ book, Women Who Risk.
Following Jesus in the Gaza Strip is not easy, and it’s even harder when you feel alone. Like many Muslim-background believers, Shareen was the only Christian in her family for years.
“When someone comes to faith in Christ, we automatically assume there’ll be more [who also turn to Jesus for salvation] …but it doesn’t always happen in our timing,” Doyle says.
