Meeting Jesus in a Tent.
One afternoon Daniel walked into a white tent in a refugee camp in Jordan, with a family of eight people inside. “Hi I’m Daniel and I’m here to tell you about Jesus,” he announced.
He wasn’t quite prepared for their reaction.
“The family freaked out, they looked at each other and almost turned white. The father was excited, yelling.”
What’s going on? Daniel wondered.
The interpreter explained that the night before Daniel’s visit, the whole family was sitting in their tent having tea together. To their surprise a man in white opened the door to their tent and stood at the entrance.
The man was glowing, and spoke to them, saying: “Hello, My name is Jesus and I am sending a man tomorrow named Daniel to tell you more about me.” Then he disappeared.
So, when Daniel arrived at their doorway and told them his name, they were completely undone. They asked him to tell them more about Jesus and he explained the Gospel to them. The whole family then responded and accepted Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour.
The father had been a part of the Free Syrian Army and had known bloodshed. He was a devout Muslim, but now, this man and his family are planting underground churches in Jordan and are seeing a harvest for the Gospel among Muslims.
- Give thanks for this family and many others who are meeting Jesus in refugee camps, and finding hope and healing through His Gospel
- Give thanks for the many Christian workers serving amongst refugees across the Middle East.
- Pray for protection for these workers, and that they will continue to be a channel of God’s love and grace to the people around them.
- Pray for safety and protection for the many Muslim Background believers in refugee camps. Pray for opportunities to meet with other believers grow in their faith, and for many more people to come to faith in Jesus through their testimony.
Colossians 1 vs 6: “In the same way, the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world – just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood God’s grace.”
