Do You Know of the Miracles Jesus Performed?

“Do you know of the miracles Jesus performed?” She (an IM team member) had carefully thought through this question she felt she should ask the man sitting in front of her, but hesitated because of the village they were in, a Muslim stronghold, and watchful eyes… But after hearing the father share of his son’s severe seizures and headaches, she felt nudged by the Holy Spirit to speak up. “Yes, I have!” He said, “But can you tell me more about him? I don’t have any other answers, maybe I can find help there.” His response took her off guard and yet she was ready, and God gave her a split-minute of courage; she shared how much God cares for his son and his family and asked if they could pray for his son in Jesus’ name. He said yes.

This small but vital interchange is only one of many each month with our teams, and each is a result of visible care and faithful response to real needs that families throughout the Middle East in our Child Sponsorship Program receive. This family is one of many who experience the ongoing presence of God through our teams, and have opened their hearts to Christ. Thank you for being part of these powerful moments with your prayers and financial support for Indigenous Ministries; we can’t do this without you, and as Paul said, “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Phil.1:3-6 -Dee, Dee A.
