There's a side of the Muslim refugee story you probably have not heard in the mainstream media. We've seen the video clips of Muslim refugees — many of them from war-torn Syria — flooding into an unprepared and overwhelmed Europe. We've heard accounts of some of these refugees committing ugly crimes and others demanding that the post-Christian societies that welcome them conform to the harsh demands of Islamic law. We've even read the stories about Islamist terror groups such as ISIS infiltrating the refugee populations in order to wreak further havoc on the West.
But chances are you don't know, as Paul Harvey might have said, the rest of the story. It's a story of God building His kingdom in the midst of chaos, doubt, and uncertainty. It's a story of Muslims meeting Jesus. Take, for example, the story of Javad.
A Muslim from Iran, Javad didn't know any Christians and didn't own a Bible, though he had heard some Christian satellite radio. Then in 2008 he migrated to Athens, and a roommate asked him to come to an Iranian church. Javad had never heard of such a thing and, curious, he went. There, in a small, unremarkable rented room, he heard the gospel and gladly received Christ.
Now Javad is sharing the Jesus he met with other Muslim refugees in Greece. Every day he goes to a refugee center, park, or coffee shop to share the good news with Iranian and Afghan refugees. He says that he knows of two or three Muslims each day since he arrived who have trusted in Christ. Working at a refugee center that provides practical aid, Javad says more than 2,000 Muslims at the center have turned to Jesus in the last eight years. Free sign up cp newsletter!
