North Africa/Middle East Refugees in the Diaspora

During a recent coffee break, believers were chatting with some women from another faith background. Through the mix of three languages, they were discussing the similarities and differences between Christianity and their religion. “You think Jesus is the Son of God,” one stated. The believers discussed this statement deeper. Often people from their religion have misconceptions about what Christians believe. The believers explained that while they believe Jesus is the Son of God, they don’t believe that Jesus was conceived the natural way; instead, Jesus was born to the Virgin Mary. The believers also explained that they believe in one God, which is often a stumbling block for many people from this religion. Although the women still seemed skeptical, one of the believers offered to study the Bible with them to better explain the stories and provide an opportunity for the women to share what they believe. The women seemed very interested in this opportunity. Please pray that as the believers meet with these women, the Lord will draw them to Himself. God’s Word does not return empty (Isaiah 55:11), so please pray for their hearts to be pierced with the truth (Acts 2:37).
