In areas where kidnappings and killings are rampant, native Christian workers are discreetly spreading the gospel. Villagers hostile to the gospel recently received food, clothing and other aid that helped soften their hearts. “Muslims accepted us, received our gifts and gave us everything we needed,” the ministry leader said. “We preached the gospel unhindered in many homes. They all heard the gospel and claimed to have accepted the message.” One villager who had heard the gospel in a dream and dismissed it was weeping with repentance as he now embraced it; his wife also accepted Christ. Workers need donations for such gospel work. Pray for the Lord’s protection as the kingdom expands.
“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” (Romans 5:5)
