Iran: Faithful Witness Brings Hope
(Source: VOM Australia)
“Lord, if You are real, You need to tell me today,” said the young woman on the bus. “Otherwise I will walk in front of the bus and let it run over me.”
The woman, who lived in Iran, was going to have a baby. But she was not married and she saw no hope for her future.
A young man was on the same bus that day. He was reading a Bible, but he kept it covered so no one could see what he was reading. He feared he could be arrested for owning the Bible.
The man felt that the Lord was moving in his heart to talk to the young woman, even though he knew nothing about her. He wasn’t sure he would obey the Lord’s leading. But after a while, he took the cover off the Bible and went over to her. “The Lord loves you,” he told her. “I would like to share a Bible with you.”
The woman cried so loudly that she drew the attention of the other people on the bus. After talking to the man, she prayed with him and gave her life to the Lord, and then he gave her his Bible. Praise God for the man’s obedience to the Lord’s guidance!
