Bringing Muslim Refugees to Christ

The following email arrived this morning from a regular contact, a former Muslim who converted to Christianity and now lives in a Western country. Her adopted country, like virtually every other Western country, has succumbed to the madness of importing thousands upon thousands of Muslim immigrants en masse. She is associated with a church that does outreach to Muslims in the refugee centers. It’s the sort of Christian ministry practiced by Christ Himself.

With her permission, here is the text of her email describing her church’s ongoing mission to the Muslims:

I am preparing a comprehensive course on Islam and each week I am teaching it to a group of volunteers in my church. I am also translating loads of Christian material to my native language. Here I have somewhat succeeded in mobilising my church to reach out to Muslims very actively and bring them to Christ. We have had some success so far.

Our church has succeeded in convincing the authorities to give us access to refugee camps, so we are doing our best to reach out to Muslim immigrants. Of course we have to do it a bit stealthily, because the authorities don’t want us to outright proselytise, but just do charity and help in the camps. But our team is doing both at the moment. We have had great success amongst the women who are so miserable and desperate! They love for us to pray for them, and later on they come to our church and just sit there and listen, and anytime they have problems they come to us and ask for help and prayers to “our God”! They are seeing the difference between the cruel and uncaring Islamic culture and Christianity. Any chance that we get, we tell them about Jesus, and they are very very open to it.

So that is what I have been doing this spring and summer: teaching about Islam to our Christian congregation so that they know what we are dealing with, and then going into refugee camps to bring Muslims to Christ as much as possible. I think that is the best that we can do at the moment and in the current situation. Now that the immigrants are here in their thousands and we have not been able to convince our governments to stop the stream of them coming to the West, then we have to at least do everything in our power to not let them remain Muslims here. I know this is so much like swimming against the current, but with God everything is possible!

By the way, the materials that I am writing to teach to my class on Islam are available on PDF, in case you need to share them in your church or elsewhere. It is not complete yet, since I am writing a new chapter every week. So far we have gone through a few preliminary lessons and gone through the whole history of Islam, from Muhammad himself to ISIS today. I taught my students to see the history in a different way, with understanding the true damaging role of Islam in it which they never learned from conventional history books. In the next lessons we will go through some basic theological notions in Islam and sharia, and then we will learn how to answer common Muslim objections to Christianity effectively.

The political process of stemming the tide of immigration is very slow and difficult. So while we are trying to achieve political changes we would be wise to try to win the immigrants themselves over to the side of light and peace and civilisation as well. I have noticed that when they just have arrived and are in the refugee camps and are in stress and difficulty, showing them the love of Christ and absorbing them into the local Western society is much easier than when they are already cocky and confident and established in their new Western country. When they are established, then they start to feel all too comfortable and try to change things around them according to their own damaged and mutilated taste.

But in the beginning they are vulnerable and open and desperate for help and company, and if the Christians of the host society, instead of just sending them a cheque every month, actually mobilise to assimilate them and absorb them and bring them to civilisation and especially to Christ, which is the source of all civilised value we have in the West, then we the Christians might be able to change the situation, at least to some degree, for the better, until the political stars line up and this madness on the higher levels of our society stops.

And the great thing about this effort is that first of all, it doesn’t depend on the government and is completely grassroots; and secondly it is so loving and kind that nobody can accuse us of being hateful and anti-immigrant. It simply is the right thing to do at the moment.

That was all the news with me and the reason that I am so busy these days. Please take care and keep up the good work.

  1. I would love to get a copy of the materials. Have been ministering to a Muslim woman at my church. She reads the Bible and many other Christian materials, and I believe that she sees a difference in the love of Jesus and what she experiences in Islam. Is there any way I can connect, or this woman can connect with me?

    Thank you.

    • Why doesn’t the said church not reach for Asia Bibi in Pakistan?

      Why doesn’t that church not reach for the native western population, who forgot/ prevented from, to say “merry Christmas.”

      Western are proud to celebrate Eid and iftar, but ashamed to celebrate Christmas.

      It is the westerners that need a cure not the muslims.

      • By mobilising the church to do its JOB in the society, i.e. being salt and light, and showing a good example we will give the cure to the Westerners as well. We have to work on both fronts: Reach out to Muslims with the love of Christ and His life-giving and civilising message, and to the local Westerners who have forgotten Christ and these two things have to be in tandem and are not mutually exclusive at all.

        I think the church has not been doing its job of being salt and light in most cases in the recent years. Of course not all churches, but most have been sleeping at the wheel! A church is not a country club, but a missionary institution. We have to be out there in the society, very actively and visibly serving and donating lots of our time to help the people in need and loving the most unlovable in the society and preach the Gospel to them. We have not been doing that as much as we should have or we have been trying to cut corners and go for quick fixes and cheap crowd-pleasing pseudo-evangelistic tricks. We have to get back to the first square and learn from the early church and Jesus Himself and be down there on the ground with the lowest of the low and most sinful elements of society and help them out of their misery with the power of God! I sincerely believe if we do that and truly get down to business and get out hands dirty in this in a massive way the whole society will come around, immigrants and westerners alike.

        As for Asia Bibi, we have no power to help her directly, but we regularly pray for the persecuted church. I hope you do believe in the power of prayer in these cases. When Peter was put in prison by king Herod, in Acts chapter 12, the Christians couldn’t do more for him than to pray, but God honoured their prayers and sent an angel to spring Peter out of jail. That’s all we could do for Asia Bibi and her family at the moment, pray. And we regularly pray for the persecuted church. I wish we could do more, but we can’t!

  2. how about a standing ovation for a lady and a church who got it right and are doing it right!

    • I agree. I’m an atheist (but cultural Christian and support the golden rule) but think that if people need to believe, Christianity is a lot better than islam. This woman is an absolute heroine!

  3. This example of positive counter-programming is so great to hear about. The West has to offer something beyond just an empty void to combat the RoP.

    It’s also nice to hear the women are so open to the Lord. It is ironic because there was a Swiss woman next to me on my last flight into Algiers. It was her first visit with her Algerian paramour. I wonder if she realizes what she’s gotten into.

    • Too bad she didn’t read Phyllis Chesler’s long years of work about her young marriage to an Afghanistan fellow student in NYC and then being brought “home” to live.

  4. There is a similar activity on the West Coast. A group has developed a trifold brochure titled “ISIS or Isa” (alluding the name for Jesus in the Quran) which lays out the stark comparisons between Muhammad and Jesus and advises Muslims on how they can SAFELY leave Islam. The PDF file will be sent to anyone who asks. Contact

    Here is a link to the content: It is also available in Arabic at:

    An excellent book on the new dramatic flight of Muslims to Christianity is “A Wind in the House of Islam” by David Garrison. It’s happening all around the world!

  5. I always wonder why we can’t fill their media (maybe via hacking over satelite signals or internet?) with messages creating doubt in islam (*very* easy to do), evangelizing Christianity, promoting Zoroastrianism for Iran, etc etc etc etc – “jam” their culture of savage Islam with better ideas that can replace or at least undermine Islam, rather than abide and appease.

    And of course do the same here among the invaders to the West, as the beautiful writer of this report is doing.

    That will be a different world in some ways from the one we presently inhabit. We’ll get there. But I hope not too late.

  6. GoV, Lots of good news, beauty, and hope on this post. Thanks to all. Good to have some of this in our usual lugubrious diet.

  7. Don’t waste one’s time in the British Archipelago. Too interested in themselves and assimilating into Islam. Too far gone I am afraid-far too far to recover Christianity or it becoming an Islamic state within a decade. Sorry to be a pessimist but I deal with this every day. Unlike me. most priests don’t bother to wear a collar and if they do they get mocked and laughed at like I do.

  8. I wish you luck, but unless land is reclaimed from Islamic control, no amount to conversions will be effective. Recall that Islam started, in most cases, as an invading force that initially established political control by a small elite. Using an effective legal system of rewards and punishments, the elite was gradually able to expel, kill, or convert dissenters, eventually making the country truly Islamic. The only way to undo that system is by establishing an alternate system of control. There are several good candidates right now: Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen – all states in complete disarray.
    Go for it.

    • Don’t forget that Christianity prevailed over mighty Rome, without any political influence and a slightest violence, just by sharing the Gospel, showing a wonderful example of love and service, and faithfulness unto death. As Jesus said: “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Please remember that and have faith in the power of God, and pray day and night about this and you will see that God will honour our faithfulness and great things will happen. Keep the faith!

      • Wars cannot be won by love alone. Crusades were not won by love alone, World War II were not either. Military and love (e.g., by allowing Japan to built its nation again) win the war. It’s pathetic that most Christians refer only to the Roman case, totally ignoring the Crusades. Both were not documented in Bible, hence, frankly, both were not biblical. Each of them were won using different approaches, hence each approach (violent and nonviolent) are valid.

  9. Perhaps the Progressive Pope should show some comfort and compassion to these poor souls. Maybe yellow and white boats with Jerusalem Crosses on life preservers. And a tent city in St. Peter’s Square. That will solve everything…

    Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
    Greetings to you in the most precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ!
    We are very glad to share with you that our Living God has filled our hearts with His burden & vision in our lives to reach specifically to The MUSLIMS by The Gospel of Jesus Christ & plant House Churches inside Muslim community. While Muslim terrorist groups such as Islamic state , Taliban, Al Qaeda and Boko Haram are killing Christians in different countries, He is leading us to reach out to the Muslims for His own glory and help them to know that Jesus Christ is The Only Living God and Saviour.
    Our Lord Jesus is using us to fulfill His plan & will in and through our lives. By the grace of God, already Several Muslim men & women accepted Jesus in their hearts as their Lord & Saviour. They are following His teachings in the midst of different types of physical tortures by the militant Muslims. They are witnessing about Jesus and they are sharing their testimonies to their relatives & neighbors. God is adding more men & women to our worship services almost every week for His own glory.
    Militant Muslims are often torturing physically and trying to kill us and the believers from Muslim background for their new faith in Jesus. Even though we are facing heavy persecutions & threats by the Militant Muslims, but our Lord Jesus is using our lives for the extension of His Kingdom and He has protected us for His own glory. Militant Muslims are constantly trying to murder us. Our lives are in danger at this moment.
    We are in great need of your kind prayers in our own lives and for the persecuted believers. Humbly, we request you kindly pray for God’s protection from the hands of Militant Muslims. Please also pray that we might be always faithful to His call in our lives and grow in Him. We are prayerfully expecting to have at least 500 believers from Muslim background at our fellowship.
    Please write few words for us.
    With regards,
    Bashir & Team

    KINDLY PRAY FOR: House Church Fellowship, Discipleship Ministry, Women Ministry, Children Ministry, Health Care Ministries for the women & Children and Compassion Ministry (such as Distributing Clothes & blankets to the poor children & Sarees to poor woman, Free tuition to the needy students, Feeding to the poor children , helping to the persecuted believers those who lost their sources of income & houses for their faith in Jesus, Educational help to the poor & needy students, Providing Nutrients for Malnourished children)
