As the introduction says it all. I believe that God has placed me in the Middle East because this region is 90% in darkness and only a few Christian Missionaries are here.
I would like to quote my friend Nabeel in 2013 - “When I was a Muslim and Christians didn’t share their faith with me I thought one of two things: either they didn’t believe it, or they were totally okay with me going to hell”
I am an ex-Muslim. Christians do not share Gospel here and the reasons are many. There are almost 2000 small churches here apart from a handful of megachurches. All these Christians meet on Friday to worship but very few choose to reach out. My heart pains when I see them gathering and not fulfilling Matthew 28 and could not even answer simple questions of their faith in their daily conversations with nonbelievers of almost 200 nationalities here. Full-time Missionaries are very few.
I completed Masters in Divinity and currently pursuing Th M, CIMS from COG and enrolled for Core Module starting June. I want to specialize in Apologetics due to the very same reasons that I can also train Christians to come out, speak out and preach the gospel. I might not be able elaborate more but I am sure anyone who reads can understand the urgency of my heart to reach out. In my initial years after becoming a Christian, I have challenged few top politicians while staying anonymous knowing that they could easily hunt me down. My desire is to introduce the importance of Apologetics with Missions in this country in every Church apart from sharing the gospel with local nonbelievers.
I am connected with a handful of itinerant from RZIM and I hope this platform will give me more confidence to humble myself, learn, connect and do what God has called me to do.
