It was a wonderful opportunity for me to chat with you during RZIM Asia Founders in Hong Kong. In essence, you told me it is precisely because you love your family too much not to be rooted in the truth and share it with them. Such boldness and sincere love you demonstrated to me that weekend.
Since I came back to Indonesia from my studies 15 years ago, I have been reaching out to Muslims, by sowing seeds of His word and love, the few times I had the privilege to discuss extensively about the Quran and Jesus/Bible, I extended the invitation for them to accept our Savior at the end. Many politely considered it but came back more adamant than ever. They “reasoned” back with the Bible may be true, but Islam is beautiful to me and my family. I semi-expected this from watching your testimony and Nabeel’s that it wasn’t an easy decision due to the fear of family/community persecution for apostates.
So my question is, is there anything more we could do beyond this? The next time we have a quality moment to converse with Muslims, is there a more effective way to engage with them? I’m not trying to convert them overnight of course, but something to at least keep the subtle fire steadily lit while being nudged to go in the right direction.
Thanks Abdu in advance, look forward to your response. Thx Kathleen for this opportunity.
