At the end of September, more than 20 refugees were baptized by our ministry partners in Greece. This is the direct result of God’s power transforming lives through His divine Word, all because you chose to provide Bibles so others might come to know our almighty God. Hundreds of Muslim refugees have been baptized in the last few years by our partners at Glyfada Church of Christ and Omonia Church of Christ because of people like you were willing to join the Gospel movement.
Why is this important?
Over the last 1400 years, the Muslim world has been unreachable. Christianity is forbidden in many countries, and these countries have intense social & family pressure to adhere to Islam.
It is humbling to think that God has chosen right now as the time for His Kingdom to ignite and burn like a mighty wildfire through the Muslim world! We see radical Islam, terrorism and immigration as crises taking place across the globe, but God is using these crises to invite the desperate to Himself, and we have the opportunity to be the invitation that they are seeking.
More than 10 million refugees from the Middle East have entered Greece. Because of your compassion, EEM has been able to partner with churches and ministries to print and deliver over 100,000 Bibles in Arabic and Farsi directly into the hands of thousands of refugees in Greece.
Many of these refugees have been dispersed across Europe, and they are taking God’s Word with them! Your gift of God’s Word is an active part of the biggest church movement in history to share the Gospel with the Muslim world.
EEM Partner Matt Gulley, Director of Mercy Ministries in Athens said, “Right now, Greece is the most geographically strategic place to reach Muslims for Christ. They are far from home and comfort. They are searching for hope and truth, and their ground is not firm. They are the most open to the Gospel they will ever be.”
This is why our Million Dollar Sunday campaign is so important, and why your participation is vital. With your help this MDS season, God’s Word can continue to reach those that we often see as unreachable.
