Then, one evening, she knocked on her sister’s bedroom door. Zinab entered and found her younger sister watching our Satellite TV program.
Zinab was afraid her parents would disapprove. But curiosity got the better of her.
She sat with her sister, and together they heard about Jesus Christ for the first time. Zinab had previously been taught that Christianity was a perverted religion.
But Zinab was drawn to Jesus. And that scared her. For months, her interest in Christianity only grew, and she continued watching our programs. During this time, she became engaged to a kind Muslim man.
Zinab imagined asking him about Christianity. But she was frightened he might respond poorly. One day, gathering her courage she asked, “Is it true that Christians are evil?”
“No. They are among the best people I know,” he replied.
Zinab felt relieved … she could tell him. “You know, I think I’d like to become a Christian,” she said.
As soon as the words left her mouth, Zinab regretted her boldness. “Of course, I’m not being serious,” she backtracked.
In the following months, Zinab gave her life to Christ. And to her immense relief, her fiancé supported her.
Today, she’s married and attends a local church with her husband! While he doesn’t share her faith yet, Zinab is hopeful he’ll come to faith, too.
God is moving in North Africa!
