Sharing the gospel with those from different cultures and belief systems can sometimes seem futile, especially when it comes to reaching Muslims. But our God is the God of the Impossible! Through years of work with Call of Hope--a ministry that reaches Muslim communities--Rev. Stefano Fehr and our guest author today, Dr. Samuel Naaman, have witnessed countless episodes of God's saving grace flourishing in the midst of adversity. Don't miss Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Tuesday to hear amazing testimonies of people from a Muslim background coming to personal faith in Jesus Christ.
