Love is patient…June 15, 2022
Nadeema, from EgyptJune 15, 2022
‘How sweet it is to live with Christ,’ writes 16-year-old Habiba. But it hadn’t always been that way…
Habiba was depressed and lonely when she first contacted our team. Although she had expressed some interest in Jesus, the words we said about God’s wonderful love and salvation didn’t seem to sink in as we’d hoped. Despite this, a member of our follow-up team loved and cared for Habiba, regularly keeping in touch to ask how she was doing.
After some time, Habiba decided to make contact. And though she expected the responder to be angry with her for ignoring all those messages, Habiba was surprised by her response…
‘She kept showing her love, support, and encouragement,’ writes Habiba. ‘This opened the door widely before me to ask those questions that I could not answer myself.’
‘Though knowing the answers to my questions brought other concerns about how to apply those principles to my life,’ writes Habiba, ‘the Miracle team took me on a journey of discipleship through which I discovered the true God.’
The loving friendship of our responder helped Habiba to understand the Bible more clearly. ‘I am blessed to know this patient friend,’ writes Habiba.
