By Jalil, Founder of World Refugee Care
I met Mazim* a few months ago. He is from Baghdad, Iraq, and is a refugee right here in the Dallas area. He was raised to be a Muslim, but decided to visit our church one Sunday. When I shared the gospel with him, he came to faith in Jesus Christ!
But his challenges are just beginning. His wife wants to divorce him because he became a Christian. But Mazim isn't deterred in the least, and has even requested to be baptized!
Please pray for Mazim, for his wife, and for his spiritual growth. God is saving Muslims, and we can only give him the credit!
On the same day Mazim received the Lord, a Syrian man named Sargon also came to visit our church. His wife died some time ago, and he came to Dallas as a refugee. He is a Christian, but has many struggles because he is persecuted for his faith. But Sargon rededicated his life to Jesus Christ! It's amazing to see this Arab Muslim and this persecuted Christian now worshiping together.
The Lord has opened doors through television ministry in places where we are unable to personally take the gospel. A 30 minute program, Stranger on Earth, will be telecast all over the world in Arabic, giving hope to countless broken and hurting refugees. In the midst of so much pain in the Muslim world, God is using your support to restore broken hearts and bring people back to him. Our job is to tell people, and the Lord’s is to change them.
How can you pray for Jalil and World Refugee Care:
- Pray for the TV programs that many in closed countries will be reached through them.
- Pray that the Lord will give us wisdom and the ability to show His grace in the midst of persecution.
- My wife and I recently met with a Muslim man and his wife from Iraq, who are seeking asylum in the USA. Our discussions turned to the Lord, and they were interested in hearing about salvation in Jesus. Please continue to pray as God works in their hearts!
World Refugee Care provides basic humanitarian needs such as housing, grocery supplies and spoken English classes for the refugees in Syria, Lebanon, Turkey and right here in Dallas, seeking every opportunity to share the love of Jesus.
