Whenever we visit a local village, we pray that God would give us a person of peace—someone who will welcome us in, be receptive to the gospel, and connect us with others (Matt. 10:11-13). We don’t normally expect the answered prayed to come in the form of a 15-year-old Roma (or gypsy) girl! Lydia lives…

Several months ago, I began befriending a woman from an unreached people group in a very conservative Muslim republic. The first time I shared the gospel with her, she said she believed, but I felt like she just wanted to appease me. But then we hung out several weeks later and she told me that…

One night in the dormitory, a random student overheard my teammate and I chatting in English. He invited us to come and meet his friend Gabby who had just returned from studying in America. We agreed and went to introduce ourselves to Gabby. As we began talking, I began to share some of my testimony….

Marwan came to Moscow on a student visa to escape his country of Sudan and to live a somewhat normal life. Sudan is a heavily persecuted country, and Marwan’s father was killed for resisting a regime’s takeover. A friend of his was killed under the accusation of being an atheist. After seeing absolute horrors committed…

During a recent mountain climbing trip with my Muslim friend “T”, I had the opportunity to follow up on the faith conversations we started last winter. We talked a lot about forgiveness, about how we can never truly be at peace unless we forgive and how we need God’s help to love and forgive others…

“My own sister-in-law reported me because I allowed missionaries to stay in my home,” said a Tajik believer who lives in Russia. “If I do anything related to that work and she finds out about it, she will report me. All my neighbors discriminate against me; it’s very stressful.” There are few Tajik believers in…

On a flight recently, I sat next to a sweet lady, Desy. She shared her Pringles with me, so I shared my chocolate with her. I shared my testimony about Jesus’ deliverance in my life and His miraculous power. She was open to more so I shared the gospel with her and she prayed with…

For the past several years, a teammate and I have been friends with Jamal, his brother, and their wider circle of friends. While others at times showed more direct interest in Jesus or the Bible, Jamal always struck us as slowly inching his way towards the Light, consistently asking good questions. Recently, something amazing happened! Jamal came over…

Some friends and I met a young man from a mountainous republic. Within his republic, there are about forty different people groups, all with their own language and culture and all of whom are unreached and devoutly Muslim. We had the joy of being the first to ever share the message of salvation with him! He responded:…

A few days ago, I was driving through a small town with a Russian believer and he pointed out a house with a large number of cars parked outside. “Do you see all those cars? It’s like that all the time. This is where the local witchdoctor lives, and they’re here to see him.” Not…
