Beyond Cuba to the Ends of the Earth!

“You have been a huge encouragement to us this week. It was a fruitful time, and we learned so much we had not been aware of.” I am excited to tell you that believers in the Cuba Assemblies of God are responding to the call of God to take the gospel to Muslims in their country… and to Muslims in other parts of the world.   Thanks to your monthly gifts, Global Initiative is impacting the Muslim world with the gospel by training these believers through the Jonah Initiative. Some of our team members recently returned from training sessions in…

From Europe to the World

For many years, Global Initiative instructors have trained young missionaries at the Romanian Center for Cross-Cultural Studies (CRST). During this academic year, Harry Morin and Fred and Annette Farrokh taught the second-year students intensive classes in ministry to Muslims. Like many European Christians, our friends at CRST have noted that this is the 500th Anniversary of the beginning of the Protestant Reformation in Europe. Martin Luther’s nailing of his “95 Theses” to the church door in Wittenburg, Germany is considered by historians as the beginning of the Reformation. Revival fires are burning once again in Europe! Many of our missions…

Jesus the Judge

When Christians think about the day of Judgment, we usually think about being with Jesus forever and worshipping in God’s presence, but for our Muslim friends, the day of Judgment is a terrifying day of punishment. In today’s podcast, Harry has a way that we can introduce Jesus into this conversation. Join us in prayer during Ramadan! We’re following along with Prayercast.com and 30DaysPrayer.com.

The Gospel of Barnabas

Has your Muslim friend ever mentioned the Gospel of Barnabas? This text is believed by some Muslims to have been excluded from the Bible, and some believe that is proves that Jesus is not the Messiah. Join us as Harry Morin explains what the Gospel of Barnabas is, and how we can respond to our Muslim friends.     

Training Passionate Students in the Caucasus!

“Thank you for coming. I believe your visit was a divine appointment!”  We have been sharing with you how the Holy Spirit is opening new doors for Muslims to be reached with the gospel. This month we share news of yet another brand new open door of ministry! A few weeks ago, Global Initiative team members Fred and Annette Farrokh conducted an intensive missions training seminar in one of the six countries located in the Caucasus, a region at the border of Europe and Asia. The training seminar theme was “Sharing the Gospel with Muslims.” Fifty enthusiastic students attended the week-long…

The Movement of People

Can you recall a time that God brought someone into your life so you could share Christ with them? Well, Daryl Grasinger is discussing that on a global scale in today’s podcast. Has God led Muslims into your life for you to befriend?

The Case of Ali

This update has been submitted by Global Initiative colleagues working with refugees in Europe. Names and details have been sensitized to protect those involved. Please join us in prayer for these refugees and those ministering to them.  This is the case of Ali, a 22 years old young man. Ali was brought to us by Mohammed whom we helped with legal information. Mohammed found Ali after he had been sleeping on a bench for a week. He took him to his house that was rented for a few days. When Ali was brought to us, we saw that he was suffering from severe depression and suicidal…

That’s Not What Simple Means: My Recent Visit to a Mosque

Humans are inherently complicated. Even rules that should be simple (stopping at a stop sign, for instance) can somehow become fraught with complications. “Well, a rolling stop is okay, right?” “There’s no traffic coming, so I’ll just keep going.” “That car hesitated for 3 seconds longer than I think is necessary, so I’m going. I don’t have all day.” “I reject your arbitrary societal structures! STOP SIGNS MEAN NOTHING TO ME.” Any concept that is simple can, and usually will, become more complicated when humans are added to the mix. Now, full disclosure, the town where I live is known…
