It takes time sharing the Gospel in an Islamic country…

FIM missionary, Steve, writes about a person that he has repeatedly witnessed to.  “We share the Good News in season and out of season but it gives special joy to have an in-season opportunity.  The other day I had a wonderful time sharing the Gospel with our mechanic. He was saying how he remembers Mom (who also served as a missionary) and certain things she did and said. He then asked if I prayed for her, adding he was sure I did. (It is the custom of people here to especially pray for those who have died who were very dear to them as an expression of love and respect.) I said ‘no’, because she was in Paradise where all is perfect and prayer is no longer needed. I told him the story of the dying thief who believed in Jesus and went to Paradise that very day though he was a condemned criminal. Because Mom believed in Jesus, she is certainly in Paradise.  Continue to pray for his salvation.”
