By LEAH MARIEANN KLETT, Reuters A pastor in the Middle East who daily risks his life to share the truth of Jesus Christ said he's witnessed a "huge thirst" for the gospel among Muslims, who continually ask him for Bibles.
As a young man in Jordan, he felt called by God to minister to Muslims. Thus, for over ten years, Pastor Rashad has traveled up and down his country to visit villages and remote communities, sharing the love of Christ everywhere he goes.
He told Open Doors that because less than three percent of Jordan's population is Christian, many people have never heard the gospel.
And even in areas where many Christians live, most churches are not open to believers or seekers from a Muslim background, as proselytizing is strictly forbidden in Islamic law.
