    1. Hello Bob,

      Am so greatful to here what the almighty God is enabling you to offer to his servants.

      Firstly, am a newcomer to this website and so impressed with the OC international work it does to promote intercultural faith and acceptance of people with different colours.

      Bob, am a Christian myself but, with friends of Muslim faith whom I see now are being marginalised within their society or neighbourhoods due to the rampant atrocities being committed by ISIS in the name of Islam.

      My question to you Bob does OC international offer any kind of support to individuals like me who want to empower my Muslim faith friends to have a believe in Jesus Christ?

      Thank you.

    2. Hi Henry, thanks for writing. Glad you found us on the web, and I hope the stories are an encouragement to you. Try to pick up the book Winds in the House of Islam; by David Garrison; I think it will encourage you. We don’t have resources financially, but I will pass your comment along to a friend in the UK to see if he can get in touch with you. Meanwhile, continue to live out the love and life of Issa and I know God will be pleased and also draw to you others who need your encouragement. Blessings, Bob
