Middle East Strategic Summit
“You’re telling us that we were risking our lives and willing to die for a lie but now that we have the truth of God we can’t?”
In August, Jordan Lewis Missions hosted the 2nd annual Middle East Strategic Summit. Over the course of the day we heard countless stories from various JLM partners that both stirred our faith and provoked action.
The quote above was from a former radical Muslim named “Hamza” who converted to Christianity and was told when he surrendered to Jesus that openly preaching the Gospel in his nation was not only dangerous, but impossible.
The name Hamza means Lion in Arabic. All across the Middle East men and women of faith are rising up to preach the Good News despite terrible opposition. The Apostle Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:19 to pray “that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the Gospel.”
Right now, our JLM partners are actively and boldly preaching the Gospel and planting churches among Muslim tribal groups who have NEVER been exposed to this life-changing message.
Facing the impossible, these brave servants of Christ have redirected their fervor from killing in the name of Allah to start movements for Christ in two Middle East Nations that were thought previously to be unreachable. We learned that literally tens of thousands of unreached people came to Jesus through these outreaches – even entire villages at one time!
Now “Hamza” and his network are strategically planning their next outreach in one of the most restricted Muslim nations. They are ready and mobilized and only await the finances needed to begin.
We rejoice that nearly $100,000 has already come in to support this work. And by the end of the year our goal is to raise an additional $250,000. These funds will be used to deploy multiple teams all across this nation to share the Gospel, disciple new believers and establish churches.
