Tired of Rituals: Impact Southeast Asia

I am Akbar*, an Islamic teacher. I am thankful that the Lord showed me mercy through His Word. My family and I have been staunch Muslims for generations, believing that Islam was the only true religion. Despite faithfully practicing these religious rituals and routines, I had no peace in my heart. I became so disillusioned that I stopped praying and going to the mosque. My wife was shocked by this change.

Thankfully, I was invited by my friend, Yosua*, to a gathering hosted by national pioneers Rizky* and Reza*. Here, they read from the gospels in Arabic and simply explained about Jesus, the Messiah. There were 11 believers in Christ and 30 unbelievers at this event.

When I told my wife about Jesus, she threatened to divorce me. But, after Pioneers Rizky and Reza explained more about Jesus to us, she accepted Jesus too and we were both baptised.

Please pray as we share this mystery of the Gospel with our families and community.
