This teacher told Mo she had taken the Facebook app off her phone because she was “fasting” from Facebook for Lent. He was curious, so the teacher explained that Lent was a time to be solemn and remember the events leading up to Christ’s death on the cross.
He asked questions like, “If Jesus was innocent, why didn’t he fight back?” So the teacher continued the story, sharing that things didn’t end with Jesus death. She spoke of the resurrection and how God gave His Son to die for everyone, even people who didn’t love Jesus. The conversation included pictures and illustrations, diagrams, and Biblical references. Toward the end, this curious man became silent. Finally, Mo asked if he was allowed to go to a sunrise service at a Christian church. (In mosques, non-Muslims are sometimes not allowed to enter.) Of course, he would be welcomed in a Christian church!
A male friend of the teacher accompanied Mo to church early that Easter Sunday and discipled him over the next few weeks. Soon, the man accepted Christ as his Savior. Afterward, he said to the teacher, “I am in God’s family and Jesus died for me. He is the way I will have life forever!”
Praise God for this man’s salvation--all because of a discussion about not being on Facebook.
