Shahabuddin’s testimony is a powerful one. Although a new believer, God is already using him to impact the people in his life. When he found the Lord, he began sharing this hope with the people around him. He told a friend about the Lord and directed him to Unite Life. Because of Shahabuddin’s faithfulness and eagerness to share the gospel, we were able to get his friend connected to a host and teach him about the Lord.
Shahabuddin came from a Muslim background and grew up not knowing the Lord. In the midst of his struggles, he decided to seek out the hope that comes only from the Lord. He was struggling with issues with his business and decided to find prayer support from Unite Life. The team prayed for him over the phone and after this, he was willing to get connected with a host. We connected him with a host who is continuing to disciple him and tell him about the Lord.
After his call with the Unite Life team, he referred us to his friend, Salman. He found such hope and joy in the Lord and knew he wanted to share this with the people in his life. His friend was dealing with some family problems and he wanted to know if God could really restore anything. When the team got in contact with him, they were able to share the gospel with him and tell him about the importance of prayer and faith.
Once the team prayed with him and told him some more about the Lord and the hope of salvation, he wanted to be connected with a host. Once he was connected, the host was happy to talk to him and tell him more about Christ and what it means to follow Him. Since the host does not currently have a church, he will be meeting him at his home to be able to connect and talk with him in person.
This story shows what can happen when we faithfully share our stories and the hope of the Lord with the people around us. Although Shahabuddin had only recently become a Christian, he had felt the hope that comes from the Lord and wanted his friend to experience the same thing. He pointed Salman to God and is now able to see his friend come to salvation along with him. This is a great encouragement and reminder to lift up those around us and point them to the Lord. If this man could do it, with so little knowledge of the Lord and His Word, we can as well.
