Grace and peace to you in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope and pray that you and your family are well, both physically and spiritually.
Certainly everything has changed because of all the new regulations due to Covid-19. With every crisis there is an opportunity and God has brought new opportunities to the Light For All Nations ministry. I have started doing new things, such as Facebook Live everyday with a short message in Arabic at 3:00 PM (EST), and preaching to many churches, groups, and online conferences through live video. I just had a conference with Muslim Background believers that was joined by hundreds of people from all over the world!
At this time there is an increase in the number of people contacting us with questions, concerns and prayer requests. Many people are afraid and many have lost jobs. My heart goes out to every suffering person. We are following up with many people. One lady from a nominal Christian background asked, "how can I accept Jesus as my personal Savior?" She was very anxious to be a true follower of Jesus like what she heard me talk about on our programs. She prayed to accept the Lord and has been reading her Bible daily. Our counselor has been following-up with her almost on a daily basis. She is growing in her faith and experiencing a real change in her life. Let us continue to pray for her in her new journey with Christ and for the many others whose lives are being impacted by our ministry.
Another interesting story is about a lady who had many question and was searching for five years. Many years ago her parents who came from a nominal Christian background had converted to be Muslims and they raised their family as Muslims, but she was questioning and convicted. When she watched our programs she started to earnestly search for the truth. She had a vivid dream and saw a cross with light emanating from it. She contacted Light For All Nations and was led to receive the Lord Jesus. Hallelujah!
My friend, during this difficult and unprecedented time, we are all in this together and let us make the best of the situation. We need not have fear, for God is in control and this cloud will pass (Malachi 4:2). I will share with you that as you may expect, the usual support for Light For All Nations has gone down, as some of our regular giving partners have lost work and income. I pray for each person that God will bring deliverance and help and may we all learn, increase in faith, and become more Christ-like.
"And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:19)
I would love to know that you are praying for me and the Light For All Nations Ministry. I thank the Lord for you!
In Christ's love and service,
