I hope this is the correct place for this.
The recent discussion regarding Rick Warren's usage of the name of Isa reminded me of an interesting discussion that I had read in January. This person is a missionary to the Middle East. He writes anonomously because of security risks. He seems to be passionate about his Ministry. What do you think about his approach?

Good for him! May God bless him and open the ears of those he testifies to.

A story shared by the missionary......

Several of us had travelled for many hours just to explore the possibility of helping a poverty-stricken Muslim people group who has virtually no access to the only Story that offers them true hope. While there we met many who expressed needs and articulated various ways in which we could help their society and people. But one of these men stood out from the crowd. Not because of anything he did, but because of what God did.
This Muslim man shared with us a dream that he had even prior to knowing that we were coming. We sat there in utter shock as the dream was an exact representation of something we all (including him) experienced just a few hours before. We are all (including our Muslim friend) now convinced that God wants us to work together to help his people. Please pray that God will reveal Himself to our friend in a dream.

The following story is from a 19 year team member:
It was my first time in a country of the Middle East. I did not know what to expect but I was open for what God had in store. I was paired up with a nineteen year old Muslim girl. I was really excited about being able to talk with an English speaking Muslim who was the same age as me. She took me around town then up a mountain. We got out of the taxi and proceeded to walk down the mountain. I started praying that God would use me in some way to reach her. It was not even five minutes after my silent prayer that she asked me about the Bible. She told me that she had read it before but did not quite understand it. She then asked me to answer some questions that she had. I knew that God was at work. She was so open minded and open about herself that it had to be God. She was so dedicated to her faith; it was encouraging to me to know regardless of the fact that she was a young person that she was passionate about what she believed in. I soon found out that the reason she took me up the mountain was because that was the only place she could ask me questions and not be looked down upon for it. She asked many questions. We walked and visited for about three hours. She thanked me for helping her understand. It was such a blessing to know that I was one of those that God used in that girl’s life. She told me I would always hold a place in her heart and that she would never forget me. She will always be in my prayers and in my heart as well. It was an amazing trip and I was forever changed by that experience.
