In Matthew 7:14, Jesus talks about the gate to life: narrow, reached with difficulty, discovered by only a few.
Praise God that, so far this year, 203 people have found the gate to life through Miracle Connect’s ministry.
I reached out to Miracle Connect, wanting to learn more about Jesus and the Christian faith. I learned that God loves me and made a great sacrifice for me, and I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior.
I began talking with my university friends about God’s love and about Jesus. Soon afterward, I began receiving daily threats by phone. I had to destroy my sim card and change my Facebook account multiple times to avoid these threats. I pray for God’s protection every day.
As Christians living in the West, we are making our spiritual journeys in relative physical safety. Our countries accept—maybe even embrace—Christian values. We can freely walk into a church building to worship God alongside hundreds or thousands of like-minded people. We can openly talk about trusting God and loving our Savior.
Following Jesus isn’t easy for anyone, but the obstacles we encounter are very different to those faced by Christians in the Middle East and North Africa—where Christianity is not the majority faith.
Our spiritual brothers and sisters have each made a brave (and wonderful) choice to turn away from a belief that once bound them with their families and friends. Imagine doing that!
They don’t automatically get a church to join. Instead, they face daily challenges, and are likely to experience isolation, loneliness, poverty, and insecurity.
Although Miracle Connect exists to help people find the Truth, a big part of our ministry is in supporting those who have made that leap from darkness to light.
Our follow-up team members dedicate many hours, every day, to counselling, supporting, and discipling individuals, one-on-one. Our radio and TV productions bring hope and encouragement, and our social media pages create space for community.
We are truly walking with those we love and serve—but we wouldn’t be able to do this without YOU.
We want to see people become like the tree in Psalm 1:3: fruitful, with leaves that do not wither.
Pray this over the 313 individuals currently receiving online discipleship.
This Thanksgiving, we join with give thanks to God for His many blessings and for all that He has done.
We thank our supporters for the part they play in helping believers and seekers know they are not alone. This partnership, through prayer and financial giving, is especially appreciated in a year when the people we serve have experienced much fear and uncertainty.
