Freedom Friday with Tessa Afshar

Today on Perry and Shawna Mornings award winning fiction writer (Pearl in the Sand, In the Field of Grace) Tessa Afshar shares her amazing story of being found by Jesus.  Tessa was born and raised in a Muslim family in the Middle East.  Her parents divorced when she was 14.  She moved with her mom to the UK and then to the US.  By the time she was 25, she was broken and desperate after a failed marriage.  But no one had ever shared the good news with her.  She didn’t know she could turn to Jesus. 

That’s when Jesus came to Tessa in a dream and what she saw in his eyes changed her forever.  After the dream she met some believers who loved on her and shared the gospel with her.  That’s when she was spiritually reborn.  Then Tessa has words of love and hope to share with Muslims.  If you have any Muslim friends, share this with them.  And finally we talk about why Jesus is showing up so often in dreams in visions in the Muslim world.  Share this amazing story!  Find out more about Tessa at
