Love is patient…June 15, 2022
Miracle Connect’s social media pages are seen as trustworthy and reliable places to learn about and discuss spiritual matters. There are many misconceptions about the Christian faith among the people of the Middle East and North Africa, but our team is happy to address these in a respectful, loving way.
God’s love is for me
I contacted Miracle Connect through Facebook. They helped me recognize that God’s love is for the world and for me. I accepted Jesus as my Savior and have begun the journey to learn more about Him, the true and only God.
The rise of atheism
A growing number of people in the region now identify themselves as non-religious or atheist—the greatest rise being among under 30s, who represent more than half the population. However, despite the label, there is huge interest in talking about the how and why of creation, as well as openness to other faiths.
Crossing the minefield
At Miracle Connect, we’re always thinking about the needs and interests of our audience. So, we’ve developed a new series, which we’ve called Minefield, to tackle subjects such as atheism.
Minefield is currently streaming on social media as well as on our satellite channel. Viewers are encouraged to get in touch with their questions. In addition to atheism, topics addressed include faith, suffering, the authenticity of the Bible, and Christ.
These are the stats for our apologetics ministry between January and April of this year:
- 187,000 messages received through social media
- 1,739 people asking questions specifically relating to the Christian faith
- 217 one-on-one presentations of the gospel
- 13 professions of faith
We rejoice over every individual who has made contact. Many continue to keep in touch and are on a journey toward faith. We pray that more will take their first step of faith in Christ.
Jesus is the way
I seriously doubted that my religion was peaceful or true, and this doubt made me search for the real God. I found satisfying answers on Miracle Connect’s page.
I recognized who Jesus Christ is: the way, the truth, and the life. Jesus touched my heart and changed my whole life for the better.
As we answer people’s questions and present them with the truth, our desire is to share hope in Christ. Please pray for our follow-up team, who work so hard to connect with people. They need wisdom and patience from the Holy Spirit.
Please also consider making a small donation to help us cover the cost of running our ministry.
