All of them tell how people are coming to Christ in their homelands. One lady from Iraq tells of a priest in her hometown that is baptising 20 converts per week. Syria, however, produces more Christians than any other country. Lebanon is the country where most Syrians come to Christ. One man told me that even if a thousand workers are sent to Lebanon, the work is still too fast and too much.
Muslims are coming to Christ. Many “traditional and nominal” Christians are being born again. They are running into the safe shelter of the arms of Jesus – suddenly understanding the meaning of the cross and the blood – experiencing the peace and love that is in Jesus.
I also met with Iraqi people. They tell the same story. Many, many Christians fled, but many people are receiving Christ. A new church is rising in their nation.
It is harvest time.
- Pray for these new converts. Pray for people to teach them the basic principles of following Jesus.
- Pray for many more workers to gather in the harvest. This window of opportunity will not last.
