A Muslim's Journey to Christ

A missionary in Europe was in for a surprise when a Muslim friend returned from a month in the Middle East ready to follow Christ.

While in his home country, where it is illegal to become a Christian, the student and his sister accepted an invitation to meet privately with his sister's friend who was a believer. The friend boldly asked them if she could pray for them to open themselves to become followers of Jesus. They knew nothing about Jesus or the Bible, but had seen her persistence and love for them, and so they said yes. Together they prayed with this Middle Eastern Christian woman, asking for God's help to become followers of Jesus.

After hearing his friend's story, the missionary asked what he thought about this decision. He said he was very happy. "How do you say it, put your faith in Jesus?" he asked. "I want to put my faith in Jesus." The missionary and the student now meet regularly to study the Gospel of Mark together.
