Conversion of a Sheikh

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

Recently, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Josue and his team comprised of pastors and lay people went into a village after being discipled in how they could share the Gospel. Josue was led by the Spirit to the home of Yusufu, who was a devout Muslim. As soon as Josue saw the black mark on his forehead, he wanted to ask his team members to pass the home by. But he felt the Spirit say, “Don’t — enter in and share the Gospel with him.” Yusufu welcomed them enthusiastically. As the team shared about Jesus, Yusufu began to argue back about Jesus’ identity and divinity since Christ is viewed differently in the Muslim faith. However, the more they talked and showed him Scripture, the more he wanted to hear. And at the end of their time, Yusufu accepted Jesus as His Savior and thanked them for bringing him the true way to eternal life. To learn how you too can share your faith, visit our website at
