I've been thinking much this morning about Abdul Rahman's case in Afghanistan, and the amazing ways that God has used it.
Imagine if two weeks ago we'd have taken up a collection and raised a million dollars, then went to Afghan authorities and offered them that money in order to broadcast the testimony of a Muslim convert to Christianity on Afghan TV. What would they have said?
They might have told us that there were no Afghan Christians. And they would have told us there was NO WAY they would allow an Afghan Christian to share his testimony on national TV.
Then Abdul Rahman was taken into custody, and the national television broadcast his answers to questions about his faith: "I am not an apostate. I believe in God...I believe in the Injil (New Testament) and love Jesus Christ."
How amazing is that? What we couldn't have purchased for a million dollars, God arranged to have happen for free. And it is bearing fruit: workers in Afghanistan report that many Muslims are asking questions about Christianity and Jesus.
I thank God for the amazing work he is doing in Afghanistan.
Continue to pray for revival in that country.
