Greetings in the precious Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Firstly, I want to wish you a Happy Valentines Day! May love reign in your heart and may the Love of Christ fill your being.
The most wonderful news that the Light For All Nations Ministry receives is news of someone accepting Jesus Christ and becoming a disciple. It is inexpressible joy - a joy we experience on a daily basis! We are committed to preach the Gospel and see the Kingdom of God overtake the kingdom of darkness. It is strange how all those in the camp of darkness, no matter what religion or group - those who share a common element of being against Christian teachings and ethics, they will join forces and become allies, to fight against the light - i.e. Christianity. In Psalms 2:1-2 we read about the fight against the Lord and His Kingdom: "Why do the nations rage, and the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together against the Lord and against his Anointed...".
Our media presentations and our evangelistic services are exalting Jesus, the Lord's Anointed! We are building up the Kingdom of God! We are assured that the gates of hell will not prevail against us! Pray my friend that those in the camp of darkness will see the Light, being presented with Christ's love, and be drawn unto His Light that they too will come into His Kingdom. Our follow-up team is in contact with Mohammad from Egypt who became a believer. He expressed being in the Light by saying: "I have tasted the sweet honey; no reason to ever go back to the bitter."
Soon I am travelling to Israel to do more production for our English program, "Let There Be Light." Pray for the Lord to provide the needs so that this program will be strengthened. Producing the English program is a new cost for the ministry, but, remember how important it is, as there are many more English speaking Muslim than there are Arabic speaking Muslim and our message is targeting them.
I am also planning the follow-up Missions trip to Syria this Spring - to revisit Raqqa and Kobani to strengthen the new believers, to baptise many, to have a Christian marriage reconfirmation ceremony, to celebrate the Lord's Supper with the believers and have baby and children dedications. Pray for these new believers as they are starting several new home churches; pray for the appointment of leaders, led by the Holy Spirit. These new fellowships are all from Kurdish Muslim background.
It is amazing to see the results our ministry has on Social media. Each week I give a short video message in Arabic on our Facebook page. It is watched by thousands of people and we have had many "likes" and mostly very good comments. The videos are uploaded to www.lfan.org.
* An MBB (Muslim Background Believer) lady told us she was always in pain in her body and was kept like a prisoner in her home, but she prayed with me and was instantly healed in her body and her battered emotions were also healed.
* A 30 year old man named Mustafa, from a Moroccan religious Muslim family, shared how he was disillusioned with Islam as he saw many contradictions in the Quran and in Islamic teaching. He said he preferred the teaching of Jesus and started to read the New Testament. His life was changed when he read: "Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28). On the contrary the Quran says, "God does not lead (convert) the infidel people." Mustafa was also amazed to read the words of Jesus, "Love your enemies" (Matthew 5: 44). His eyes were opened to the truth! In the Quran he had been taught: "Kill the infidels wherever you find them.." He was raised to hate everyone who was not a Muslim, but now he loves all people, like his Savior.
Thank you dear partner in ministry for helping Light For All Nations reach the lost! Thank you for praying! Thank you for giving! May the Lord bless you and pour out His great love and peace upon you.
In Christ's love and service,
