I wanted to hear their story.
When I visited some British friends in a Moroccan city, I met a Moroccan Christian couple and asked them to share their journey to faith.
The husband had become a Christian because he had seen such a change in his brother after he had come to Christ. The wife was extremely opposed to this and tore up her husband’s Bible. She even put the phone down on any Christians who tried to contact her husband.
She began to reflect on how her husband had changed dramatically. After a while, she also became a Christian.
I then asked the couple what had changed in their lives since they had come to know Christ. They both replied that there was ‘rest’ in Christianity which they had never found in Islam.
In the gospels, Jesus declared, ‘Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.’ Matthew 11:28
This couple have experienced that Jesus wonderfully keeps his promise.

The UK is a fantastic place to engage in cross-cultural mission!
Spend two weeks with an experienced long-term team in England, seeing how you can reach the nations, right here.
How can you reach out to people groups in nations that are difficult to access? One way is to serve diaspora communities.
In this short-term Edge team, you'll get the chance to help in the running of an English language school for refugees.
Joining an Edge team is a great way to encounter God's compassion for the nations and to see how you could engage in cross-cultural mission at home or in the future.
You probably won't change the world in a week or two, but God could change yours forever.
