Stories from two women

stories of two women

Her mother was opposed to her faith.  She grew up in North Africa in a simple home at the edge of a crowded neighbourhood in the capital city and she attended school up to the secondary level.  Her mother cooked and cleaned in the home of a European family of committed Christians.  Although her mother rejected the message she heard from them, the teenager opened her heart to the Lord and began attending some of their home meetings and other gatherings of nationals.  Today, this teenager is grown up, married and has two daughters of her own who are following Christ in their teenage years. Her two sons are not.

The young man had heard about the Saviour from Christian foreign workers who were great friends with his mother and her half-sisters.  His mother arranged a marriage with his cousin.  This cousin had been dissatisfied with the practices and beliefs of her religious Muslim family.  Now that she was married to a Christian, her parents had no control over what she believed.  This young lady was free to follow her husband.  She became a follower of Jesus through observing her husband’s life and attending meetings with him.  The prayers of her husband and local Christians greatly impressed her.  One summer at a conference in the north of her country a visiting Lebanese speaker challenged her to come to a decision and so she gave her heart to Christ.

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
