Two workers from Youth With A Mission (YWAM) visited The Voice of the Martyrs a few months ago. Jeanna Faley and Kevin Sutter talked about Christian workers who go to places where Christians have never gone, even if it is dangerous to do so.
Read below what Jeanna said about how God is working among people who do not know Jesus.
It has been really interesting because it’s like God knows that in these difficult places, we need a little extra help. When we go to an unreached people, it is not uncommon at all to see miracles and healings. It is like the Holy Spirit just intervenes and God helps us.
One of the things I have mentioned is dreams. All over the world among Muslims there is something happening where they are having unusual dreams about God.
On the same night, in the same village in Algeria, a whole group of men had the same dream about Jesus Christ saying, “I am the way, the truth, and the life, and no man comes to the Father but by me” [John 14:6].
This is happening so often that if I am talking with a Muslim on a plane or meet with a Muslim, I will often just ask, “Have you had any unusual dreams lately?” They might say, “You know, I haven’t old anybody this, but …..” It is happening just that often.

To Talk About
Read the following Bible verses.
Mark 16:20 (NIV): Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
Acts 14:3 (NIV): So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to perform signs and wonders.
Acts 4:29–30 (NIV): Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.
How was God helping people believe His Word during Bible times?
How did the workers in the story above say God is helping them when they talk to people who do not know Jesus?
