Adam was warned not to share the gospel in this Afghan refugee camp, the same camp we have been serving since the crisis in Afghanistan last summer. Yet, Adam was undeterred. He and his team prayed for three hours that God would open up doors and the doors didn’t just slightly open, they swung wide open.
During Adam’s recent visit to this refugee camp, there was a boy who was terribly ill. The boys father felt helpless and worried about his son. However, God saw their pain and had mercy on them. Adam prayed over the boy in Jesus’ name and the boy was healed. This supernatural healing caused the boy’s father and his family to surrender their life to Christ.
“This is the first time anyone has told me about Jesus. If fact, I have never heard of or seen a Bible nor have I ever met a Christian”, said an Afghan doctor, also a refugee. The doctor was so moved by the message of the gospel that Adam gifted him a Bible. His response? He wanted more Bibles, and he’s not even a believer yet. When Adam asked why, the doctor said he wanted all of his fellow Afghans to have access to one.
As Adam shared these stories with me, my heart was overjoyed. We had no idea why God was leading us to this Afghan community in 2021 nor did we have any reason to be there. But, God opened the doors, many gave generously, and our team showed up with food, water supplies, wheelchairs and more…simply to serve them in their time of need.
