God Story
Dreams come true

Joshua* is a young missionary who lives in a Central Asian country. Recently, he was invited to lunch with some fellow missionaries. He was very pleased to go. When he arrived, he was even more excited to see that a number of local men were there too.

Joshua sat with a young man whom he had not met before. They began to talk. After some time, to Joshua’s amazement, he realised the young man was a follower of Jesus!

Joshua was eager to learn how he had come to know the Lord. After all, he was from a very strict Muslim country. Right away Joshua asked him to share his story.

The young man told him, “One night I had a dream. I was at the bottom of a pit unable to get out. People stood above me looking down, but no one would help! Suddenly I saw Andrew* appear among the crowd of faces.” The young man then pointed to Andrew, who was sitting across the table.

“He reached down and pulled me out. Then he took me and we walked over to Isa al-Masih” (Jesus the Messiah). He went on, “I had the exact same dream the next night!”

“I knew I had to go talk with Andrew. When I found him and told him my dream, he stood amazed! Andrew told me that a few months earlier he had begun to pray that Allah would speak to me in a dream.”

A dream had come true for both of these men! Andrew had the most joyful privilege of introducing this young man to Jesus.

Joshua marvelled at this story. It was a beautiful example of partnering with God through prayer.
