A Story from VOM’s President, Jim Dau
In northern Iraq, I met a pastor whose church is giving aid to Muslims who have been driven out of their homes by war. One day, he invited the Muslims inside the church so they could get out of the rain. They sat down and waited to receive their aid packages. The pastor share Scriptures with them. Since then, the Muslims who come for help want the pastor to preach a sermon before they get their packages!
The seeds of the gospel are being planted.
To Talk About
- What does it mean that “the seeds of the gospel are being planted”?
- It’s not always safe to talk to Muslims in Iraq about Jesus. Why do you think the pastor does it anyway?
- Do you think it’s a good idea for the church to give aid to Muslims? Why or why not?
