Tatars of Russia/Central Asia

July 27, 2015
Tatars of Russia/Central Asia At the end of spring, workers visited a retired woman named Alice*, who is the only believer in her town. The visit included a large meal, singing praise songs, and reading from the Word. During the conversation, Alice shared about her faith journey. It began years ago when one of our local brothers distributed flyers to every mailbox in Alice's town. The fliers advertised a correspondence course that explained the Good News. When Alice got hers, she immediately threw it away, thinking, "I am a Muslim. I don't need that." Later, she regretted throwing it away and asked her neighbor, Nora*, if she happened to have the brochure. Thankfully, Nora's mentally challenged daughter, who doesn't throw anything away, still had the flyer. Alice read it, wrote to the organizer, and began studying and reading the Word. Her spiritual eyes were opened, and she believed! Nine years later, Alice is meeting regularly with Nora, faithfully teaching her about God's Word and sharing the gospel with her. God used a mentally challenged young woman to get the gospel to Alice, who is now sharing the gospel with that young woman's mother. Nora is close to trusting the Son to save her. As a result, there are now two retired women in this "county seat" who are learning more about the Father and His deep love for them. Praise the Lord for His work in their lives, and ask Him to continue to draw Nora to Himself. (*names changed)
