The Taliban, the New Waodanies?
The Waodoni tribe is in the jungles of Ecuador, South America. The movie, “End of the Spear,” reveals how God used the murder of five American missionaries by the Waodani tribe as the beginning of the redemption of the Waodoni people. Incredibly, their wives went into the tribe after their deaths & began showing the Waodanies the love of Jesus.
Here is a bit from the movie:
“No one has ever made contact with these people & lived to talk about it.”
Compare this with the extreme Muslims, the Taliban, & the children, youth, & men they recruit:
The families from which the Taliban recruits need clean water, a means to take care of their families, & food. Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, talks about the lives of these children & their families who live in poverty. Watch her interview these children in the video, “Inside a school for suicide bombers.” It struck me to the core of my being.
The only way I’ve found to witness to Muslims is through showing them love & what true forgiveness is.
This is the way the Gospel goes forth. Period. Across the street or in volatile countries. The love & message is the same.
“Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.” Matthew 9:38
There are many Muslim families in our own towns. If you know any, seek to be their friend. Help them. Many are poor, see if you can meet their needs. What will Jesus do through you?
