Today I met a former high school math teacher who began to feel the burden of God’s love for all peoples. Near his home in an American city was a mosque, so he began to pray how he might bring the love of Jesus there.
After an extended season of prayer, he decided to go to the mosque. He was invited to meet the imam. The visitor told the imam that he was a follower of Jesus, and had a heart to help people. He wondered if there might be a student or two who was struggling with their mathematics. Could they use some free tutoring? The imam not only accepted the kind offer, but encouraged all the children from the mosque to come for tutoring.
That was eleven years ago. The teacher has not only continued the tutoring, but has brought many volunteers to the mosque to help out.
Opportunities for showing the love of Jesus abound right in our towns. May God give us hearts to serve, and commitment to pray for direction and open doors!
