A friend of mine asked me to pass this along. It’s a website designed to give Muslims a safe place to explore the Scriptures and answer common objections against faith in Christ. What makes the website unique is the way it makes use of the Koran to point seekers toward a Biblical understanding of who Jesus is. A lot of people don’t know this, but the Koran has many positive things to say about Jesus and the Bible. Once I was in a north African country in the middle of the Saharan desert and was meeting with a group of believers. When I asked them how they came to know Jesus they explained that the Koran says that Muhammed was a sinner, but that Jesus (whom they call Isa) never sinned. This is what got them on the road to learning more about Jesus and eventually deciding to follow Him.

Below is an e-mail I received from Reuben Rai, an indigenous church planter in Nepal. I thought my readers might enjoy some news information from around the world.
Today is the last day for Monarchy and tomorrow Nepal shall anounce itself a Republic State. Elected members were sworn today in new assembly. Keep on praying for Nepal.

Below is an e-mail I received from Pastor Rashid in Pakistan. I’ve been in communication with Pastor Rashid for about a year now. I’m going to start posting some of the letters I receive from pastors around the world to this blog. Sometimes there are direct appeals for funds, other times there are stories about what’s happening in their respective countries. I thought my readers might enjoy hearing from some of the people that I’m in weekly communication with around the world. If you’d like to help one of these ministries, you can go to my website and make a donation.
Dear Brother Aaron Taylor,

We will send you complete Bible distribution report with pictures. We will be very thankful to you for this kindness. Kindly reply me soon.
