We believe that when God touches someone’s heart he does not give up on them but pursues them by his Spirit, sometimes over many years. For most people, coming to know the Lord is more like a journey than a single event. With this in mind comes our re-engagement campaign…
Arab World Media has been very successful in connecting with 18-35 year olds across the Arab world through new media. In 2012, we received over 2.6 million visits to our websites while 6,500 individuals made personal contact (through email, phone calls, texts, etc). Of these, 85 individuals went on to meet someone in their own country, but many did not progress further than an initial, one-off contact.
We are contacting people we haven’t heard from in a while to try to re-engage them in spiritual discussion. So far, 309 people have been contacted, with about 4,500 more to go. Responses have been encouraging, like this message from a man in Morocco…
Warm greetings. My brother, I’m one of the older generation of believers here. After many years of fellowship together in Christ our church broke up and we went our different ways. But I still have my relationship with the Lord through his word. I don’t meet with any others at the moment. But I would like to have a large print Bible. It’s no use sending it in the post because it won’t reach me. I would be happy for one of your trusted friends to bring it to me.
It’s fantastic to hear that this man is still going on with his faith, despite the difficulties he has experienced. Please be praying for this man and for all the other men and women we’ll be contacting over the next few weeks and months.
