This summer in Southeast Asia, we saw the Luke 10 principle come to life through a short-term team. For several weeks, a group of college students, missionaries, and local believers visited several universities to meet and build relationships with students to find a person of peace.
But it turns out they had a person of peace already in their midst—a young woman who was translating for them.
She is a Muslim background believer who was secretly a Christian. She couldn’t tell her family because they were Muslims. She had never shared her story of faith with anyone except her boyfriend who had led her to Christ. But while watching these students and the local believers sharing about Jesus, she found the confidence to tell her own story to those she already knew.
This summer, she made her first public admission of faith and became active in sharing the gospel throughout her network.
Because of her testimony, six of her friends surrendered their lives to Christ—which has been the greatest movement of the gospel that our national partners have seen in the time they have been there.
