Hamid was a Muslim living in a Muslim country. Not many of the people in the country were Christians, and most of the Christians were workers who came from other countries. The law of the land said the Christians could not share their faith with Muslims. They were allowed to attend churches for Christians from other countries, but the churches had to be approved by the government.
But one worker from another country dared to follow God’s laws instead of the laws of the country. He led Hamid and several other youth to Christ.
The youth all wanted to know more about what it means to be a follower of Jesus. But the Christian worker had no Christian books to share with them. He didn’t even have a computer on which to compose lessons for the youth.
So he wrote lessons about how to follow Jesus by hand on paper. He wanted to make copies of the lessons for all the “students,” but it might have been dangerous to ask a Muslim at a print shop to copy lessons about Jesus. He looked until he found a safe place to copy the lessons.
