Joseph* had a notebook full of questions, and he was determined to find answers. Ibrahim*, a disciple of some of our coworkers, shared with Joseph how he made his decision to accept Christ. By the time Ibrahim finished, Joseph was shocked and asked to meet again soon.
Though Ibrahim has been a Christian for several years now, he had previously been a cynical skeptic just like Joseph. After the war in Syria, Ibrahim believed there was no God. The religion he grew up with had failed him, so he became an atheist. He told a friend, “There is no love in this world.” Despite this, he spoke with a Christian at a book fair who shared the gospel and gave him a Bible to take home.
Ibrahim was so surprised and captivated by what he heard, he went home and read 20 chapters of Matthew. That night, Ibrahim left behind his cynicism and made the decision to follow Christ.
