We met our friend Lin, a believer with a Muslim background, while prayer walking through a Hui area of town. By the Lord’s leading, we were able to share with her His vision concerning the Hui people group. A month later, she introduced us to another believer with a Muslim background, and together we continued to mentor and disciple one another, to worship, and to study the Word. We prayed earnestly for those closest to them – spouses, parents, children, and other relatives.
In the Lord’s time, the father of one of our new friends decided to believe and follow in baptism, and soon afterward, with Lin and her friend’s prayer and support, the first Hui house church was established.
The number of believers attending the church has grown as family members have come to believe, and the church continues to meet weekly for worship, study, mentoring, and encouragement. The church is impacting the community as its members seek to share the Gospel with those around them, and we have had the privilege of teaching many about Jesus, including leaders and teachers. Please pray that through these opportunities, those in the Hui Church will be especially fervent in sharing the truth about Jesus and His heart for the Hui.
Our prayer is that this Hui church will expand into nearby cities, as well as across the coast as several members relocate in the hope that their witness will be used among the Hui for God’s glory. Please pray with us also for believers in this church who often experience persecution from family members who have not yet believed.
We always praise Him and thank Him, readers, for your unceasing prayer for the Hui and for His glory!
