Give to Impact Middle East
Impact Middle East understands that some of you may not be able to give at this time due to loss of income during the coronavirus crisis. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
We are so grateful for those who are able to give.
With No Fear
from Impact Middle East leader in Israel

Inaam and I usually walked together early in the mornings. We talked about many matters, but Inaam felt very uncomfortable speaking about faith. Every time I attempted to bring up the subject, she quieted me. I tried many times to share the gospel with her, but she would not let me do so.
 
One day she phoned me to let me know she was unable to walk with me because of pain in her knees. She suggested I visit her instead. So, I did.

As we sat down with cups of coffee, she began to tell me about her pain and her concern that it might get worse. Then she added, “I would be so grateful to God if my condition does not get worse. I don't want to need someone to look after me in my old age.”

I thought that was the moment I had been waiting for to speak about her faith. I started to talk about death and life after death. I told her, “All people will leave this earth. I know there is life after death and that when I die, I will meet my heavenly Father. Therefore, I have to ask myself, ‘What have I have done with my life here on earth? How have I spent it? Have I reached out to God for forgiveness and asked Him to be my Savior?’ Death is only a passage to life of a different kind. It can be a life with eternal happiness, no pain, no coronavirus, no suffering, no fear. My life here on this earth and, most importantly, my response to Jesus determine my eternity.”

Inaam listened carefully. Her eyes were fixed on me. I continued, “Inaam, you are living alone. Your children have grown up and moved out. God is giving you a chance to think about your life and to come to Him. Do you know Jesus loves you, that He died for you? You can live in relationship with Him. He will cast away your fear. The Holy Spirit will strengthen you; you will have joy and peace.” I asked her if she wanted me to pray with her to receive Jesus Christ as Lord.

That day, at 7:00 in the morning, Inaam began a new day … and a new life. She can now face this life – and the life to come – with no fear.
