The explosion at the Kabul airport last summer, while a sea of Afghans were trying to escape, separated Abdul* from his family. Not knowing if the other survived, he and his wife kept searching until they found each other. Not long after that, a miracle transpired. They escaped Afghanistan. Why am I sharing this?
Attacks are on the rise against Christians in South Asia. Yet despite this reality, Amos* takes every opportunity to share the Gospel because the need to deliver the Gospel to those without access far outweighs his own safety.
Back in July, Amos met Sharma. Sharma comes from a strong and dedicated Hindu family. His family has strong ties to the local temples. Knowing the reality taking place in his country, Amos met Sharma and shared the Gospel while Sharma was doing work at Amos’ home. Rather than pushing back, Sharma’s interest peaked. They began spending time together and eventually Amos led Sharma to Christ. And, this was no small decision.
Their marriage was torn apart. They drifted away from the Lord. Yet, this did not happen overnight. It was a gradual journey as their hearts became consumed with the stress of finances and lack of work.
Ved and his family were confessed followers of Jesus. But, confession was not enough to keep them centered on Christ. They lacked discipleship.
When a few years had gone by, Isaac and Rebekah connected with this family, although Ved was out of picture at this point. They learned that Ved left his wife and family and lived far away, like a wanderer searching for hope while ignoring the One who gives it.
Amos* recently walked through an inner-city village in South Asia searching for opportunities to share the Gospel. Instead, he met a Christian lady who invited him to her home for prayer on Sunday.
Sunday arrives but instead of simply having a prayer meeting, the lady invited 6 Hindu neighbors to join them. They prayed, sang, and Amos shared the Gospel.
