A heart for Muslim Evangelism

Since I went on my first Bible distribution outreach in 2004, I have steadily developed a heart for Muslim evangelism. Recently I was invited by friends to go with their church members to Pretoria West. The mission was to reach out to the people who now live there. Many come from Somalia, Malawi and other East African states. They are mostly Muslims and have made a life for themselves in my city.

We met with the priest of the Portuguese Roman Catholic Church who gave us permission to use their facilities for Bible study.

The priest, who only speaks Portuguese and his assistant, the translator, were amazed that anybody would want to come there, let alone reach out to the Muslim population.

The priest thought that their church has become completely irrelevant!

The side entrance of the Roman Catholic Church

As we walked down the street and talked to the people who run their little shops, we met two men from Eritrea. They told us that they are not merely Christians, they are re-born Christians. I also met a lady from Malawi who professed to know Jesus as her Lord and Saviour. Although their lives are difficult, they are not afraid to say who they belong to.

The men’s bible study group have 12 members already and we are planning to start a ladies group soon. The church is so relevant.
