Much of the world has been brought to a standstill due to the pandemic. Lockdown, curfew, and social distancing are terms now regularly used in mainstream news. The effects have been felt in the Arab world too, with civil unrest in Lebanon and Yemen.
These times are bringing unprecedented opportunities. Due to lockdown restrictions, Arab people have spent more time online over the last two months during Ramadan, than ever before. The Arab World Media ministry has had to expand their efforts to meet the needs of the 85% increase in visitors, that have gone to their Arabic ministry Facebook page. Miriam is one of fifteen Arab Muslims who have turned to Jesus this Ramadan.
We have exciting news to share about Miriam* whom we prayed for in week two of Ramadan. She had a dream about Jesus, which prompted her to search for answers online. She found our ministry website, wrote to us, and began reading the Bible we gave her to download. Now she’s professed faith in Jesus!
