God answered this almost immediately. When the plane landed, both Farah and I felt a sense of significance about the week that we were about to have, and sensed an activeness of the Lord. We both went on the trip with the intention of being exposed to the realities of overseas mission (including the difficulties), due to the country’s nature of being a closed Muslim country, but in God’s grace we were able to both minister to many locals and share the gospel in ways we never imagined we would be able to!
Throughout the trip, in encounters with locals we sensed such openness with us as they invited us into their homes to chat. It became clear to us that God is moving powerfully in the land as the fields are becoming white for harvest.
