When we first arrived in North Africa thirty-five years ago, we took a walk in the countryside. We came to a rickety bridge. On the far side was a shepherd with 100 sheep. None of them would dare to cross. So the shepherd grabbed a sheep by the horns and dragged it across. Where one had gone, the others followed and soon all 100 were across. In those early days, we prayed for a first sheep or two. Ahmed* was one: when we first met him, he did not know of a single Christian in his country. He thought he was on his own. Now there are hundreds, thousands, maybe tens of thousands. And some of those early believers are leaders of groups which are multiplying.
