This week I was able to finally meet for the first time a young man who I’ve been calling for a few weeks.
A quick footnote. You remember just a few weeks ago I posted a video about guys not calling back and some guys going MIA?? Well, although that still happens I truly have seen your prayers at work, because most recently I have more guys answering their phones and meeting up. PTL.
Back to this past week. I was able to meet a 28 yr old guy we can call Abe. Abe used to be a sniper in the military. His dad is an imam. And he lives in a very conservative town south of the capital.
As we met and talked and got to know each other a bit he began to talk about some random topics (this is not uncommon). But then he began telling me how many Christians have converted to his faith and he started listing Muhammad Ali, Mike Tyson, etc, etc, etc…
I let him finish then I said, “listen Abe, let’s not talk about those guys. You and I will never talk to any of them.” Then I asked him, “Abe, forget about all those other people, what is your goal? Where are you headed in your faith?” Then with a very surprising response Abe replies, “I want to become a believer.” Then I asked, “Can you tell me how you have come to this conclusion?” His reply, “You will have wait until the next time we meet.”
It’s usually my job to try to set up a second meeting, but this son of an imam set up his own second apt. He also says he wants to bring his girlfriend because she is also interested.
Abe’s story is obviously long from complete. And only God knows what he has on his heart. But PTL that all of us get to have at least a small part of what God is doing. Maybe God will use Abe to start a great work in his town.
I love my job. I get to meet and follow up with guys like Abe. I seriously couldn’t imagine God having me in a better place. But you all encourage, pray and support us. You read our blog and pray for us. You obediently love and share the faith to people who are curious in the US and around the world. So this makes all of us involved in Abe’s journey and all the other’s whom God is drawing.
Friends, these are exciting times. Let’s remain faithful and stay the course. Prayer is our primary work!!
