Hungry for Truth
Imagine living with the solution to life’s problems, with peace, joy, love, security, hope, even assurance of eternal life after you die and yet having to keep this to yourself for fear of imprisonment, confiscation of your goods, torture, threats to your loved ones or even death. Imagine living in great poverty and being treated as a second-class citizen in terms of basic human rights, not because of a lack of education and therefore having an inability to find decent employment but simply because of your Christian faith.
Imagine a baby being born only to struggle for survival with only a few drops of milk for his nourishment and growth or even worse dying because there is no milk let alone solid food, as he grows older.
All these situations are very real for many Christians in the Arab World and the10/40 window ... many have been imprisoned, tortured, lost all material goods, lost loved ones and even lost their own lives leaving behind grieving parents, wives, husbands, brothers, sisters, children, friends. Many are being treated as second-class citizens; unable to gain employment for work they are well qualified to do, unable to educate their children, ostracized and outcast by their neighborhoods. Many Arabs are coming to know Jesus as their personal Saviour and do not have access to a Bible and other Christian literature, they often have no fellowship, no opportunity to pray with a Christian brother or sister and to learn more of the Lord through this particular means of grace.
Jesus Said,"GO and Make Disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, AND Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. Matthew 28:19-20.
