It only takes a simple prayer of faith to become a Christian: the real challenge lies in the weeks, months, and years that follow. As you live out your faith, people and situations will come along to shake or break your foundations. If you’re not from a Christian background, there can be extra obstacles, particularly if your family and friends follow another religion.
Knowing all this, our dream for 2022 is to enable all who have professed faith in Christ to keep that faith—fighting the good fight and one day finishing the race (2 Tim 4:7).
This is a big dream, but one that can be achieved ultimately with good discipleship and fellowship with a local or online community of believers.
Additionally, this year we want to:
Please pray for the Lord’s hand to be on our team and for His Spirit to guide the work of our hands.
I was raised in a very religious family. I always had doubts, but I tried to ignore these, perhaps because I was afraid of confrontation or because I felt I had no choice.
One day, while I was browsing the internet, an ad from Miracle Connect popped up inviting me to find out more about Christ. There was an Algerian WhatsApp number at the end of the ad and I wondered if there could be Christians in Algeria.
I made contact, and after many conversations and warm discussions, I was thoroughly convinced by what they told me about Jesus. I found the peace I have always desired and offered my life to Jesus. Then I began the wonderful journey of discipleship, which lasted nearly ten months. After this, I felt ready to be baptized, so I met with the team to do this.
This whole journey has been so exciting! Now I share my faith with others, declaring Jesus joyfully, without hesitation.
