EDITORIAL: Going against the crowd

Unprecedented numbers

‘Unprecedented numbers of Muslim men and women are wading against the current of their societies to follow Jesus Christ. And it is only the beginning.’
David Garrison, A Wind in the House of Islam, p6

It was a privilege for AWM-Pioneers to be one of the key partners bringing the Hope for Muslims tour to the UK.

In 2015, author and missiologist David Garrison shared fascinating insights from his research on the different communities being drawn to Jesus from across the Islamic world. The diversity of believers from Muslim backgrounds was quite remarkable.

Focus on the Messiah

Similar to the contrast between the blind beggar and the rich Zacchaeus (Luke 18 and 19), today’s precious brothers and sisters come from various walks of life, different social statuses and levels of visible need. But each one is similar in that they push against the crowd, are desperate to know the Messiah and testify to receiving His grace.

Jesus said to him, ‘Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.’ Luke 18:42 (NIV)

In our latest awmlink magazine, we meet:
– a violent man hungry to encounter Jesus despite great personal danger
– an Arab believer helping refugees cling to Christ despite hardships
– a young mum juggling family life and ministry in rural North Africa

‘I just wanted to encourage you in that I thought this month’s magazine was particularly good in the layout of the centre pages, suiting the subject matter of those two articles excellently. They also contained good details; great stuff.’ Ian

‘We love getting awmlink & prayerlink (quarterly prayer diary). Thank you for all you do in raising awareness of the needs of the Arab world in the UK.’ Alison
