A Word from Geof

In Newsletter Articles by Geof MorinLeave a Comment

Dear Friend,

I’m sure you know the story of the apostle Stephen, the Church’s first martyr. In the power of God’s Spirit, he boldly proclaimed the Gospel of Jesus at every opportunity. Many came to repentance and faith. But many also hated his message – including the religious leaders who were incensed by his preaching.

“The members of the Sanhedrin… were furious and gnashed their teeth at him. … They covered their ears and, yelling at the top of their voices, they all rushed at him, dragged him out of the city and began to stone him.” (Acts 7:54, 57-58a)

Stephen paid the ultimate price that day. And yet God was at work.

In this online newsletter, you’ll read about another fearless believer named Stephen who is boldly proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus in one of the most staunchly Islamic nations in the world.

Like the apostle before him, this Stephen has paid a great cost for his courageous witness. And yet, God is at work!

Stephen’s testimony shows that the Lord is in the same business today as He was in New Testament times – building His Church through the power of His Word.

Don’t miss this remarkable story – as well as the other updates inside these pages – and discover how God is using your partnership to advance His Kingdom across the Muslim world, even in the face of extreme opposition.

I count it a joy to partner with you in this vital work, as together we speed the day when the whole world – including every Muslim on the planet – has access to the living, life-changing Word of God.

Together, we can make it all possible.

Blessings,

Geof Morin
