Right now we are featuring Morocco in our Kids of Courage Ministry and I wanted to tell you about the feature story we have right now because it is amazing and hopefully will spur you on to pray for the children in Morocco and everywhere else too.
This is the story about a child named David who was very bold. In fact, today as I was reading in Proverbs 28, verse 1 leapt out...
The wicked flee when no one is pursuing,
But the righteous are bold as a lion.
Young David was as bold as a lion. Here's his story...
David, an American student, traveled to Morocco with some friends. He decided to give copies of the New Testament to people he met in a souk (market). Some people took the book eagerly and asked for another one. A woman covered from head to toe in Muslim robes tapped David on the shoulder, accepted a New Testament, and silently hid it in her clothing. But an angry Muslim man took a New Testament and tore it to pieces.
Policemen were watching, and they grabbed David. “How do we know you are really policemen?” asked one of David’s friends. A policeman showed him an ID badge. “I can’t read that,” said David’s friend. “It’s in Arabic.” The policeman pulled out a gun. “Can you read this?” he asked.
The officers took David to the police station and questioned him. David told the policemen about Jesus. The next day, they put him on a plane and sent him out of the country. David prays that some of the people he talked to are now followers of Christ.
