UNITED KINGDOM –– Hassan*, a Kurdish young man from western Iran, walked into the Upper Room church. From the very beginning, he began asking question upon question about the differences between what was taught there and what was taught in his strict Islamic upbringing.
The Communitas church he walked into is highly focused on refugees and immigrants from Central Asia, including Iran and Afghanistan. Our leaders there were ready to answer the questions pressing on his mind.
One weekend, after the online-only service due to Corona-lockdowns, he responded to one of the Bible teachings. We concluded with a strong invitation to give one’s life to Jesus. He texted one of our missional leaders in his broken English: "I ready for Jesus now. Can you show me?"
