As Yasmine* watched one of our recent Facebook Live¹ programs, she became outraged.
The presenter was explaining the meaning of the crucifixion. As someone who follows the majority faith of the Arab world region, Yasmine was incredibly hostile to the message being shared.
‘How can Christians worship three gods?’ she asked, calling us liars and insulting our beliefs.
While the program continued, Sarah* replied to Yasmine’s comments. Sarah is a long-standing member of our follow-up team, so she has become accustomed to this kind of response. Her own response was to love, just as Christ would.
Sarah told Yasmine how happy she was to be in touch with her, how much she valued her thoughts. She called Yasmine her ‘sister’, since—she said—they both shared a love for God.
Her loving and welcoming comments completely transformed Yasmine’s language and posture. ‘Your words are beautiful,’ she remarked.
Yasmine stayed for the whole hour, watching and listening while asking lots of questions. When the live stream ended, her conversation with Sarah continued privately.
She continues to be in touch with our team and we are helping her to understand more about Christianity. Pray with us, that she will soon know in her heart that Jesus is the only way.
