Nourdean has had many encouraging conversations with believers and many opportunities to hear the gospel. He is blind and considers himself to be a Muslim. Recently, he heard the story of Jesus healing a paralytic man: “And they came, bringing to him a paralytic carried by four men. And when they could not get near him because of the crowd, they removed the roof above him, and when they had made an opening, they let down the bed on which the paralytic lay. And when Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven'” (Mark 2:3-5 ESV). Nourdean loved this story, thinking that everything Jesus did sounded exciting and seemed to be true. He was surprised that Jesus had the power to forgive sins. Praise God for this man’s openness to hearing accounts from the Bible and his excitement about the gospel! Pray for his eyes to be opened, for his mind to be enlightened to the truth, and for him to understand that he cannot earn his way to heaven with good deeds. May he truly know the Savior, clearly understanding who Jesus is and why He came. Pray that he will put his faith in Jesus.
