  • Iranians and Afghanis converting in Germany

    The Christian Refugees of Germany - The Atlantic

    Apparently there are thousands of Iranians and hundreds of Afghanis in Germany who are finding Christ. There's even a waiting list for baptisms. So that's good news.

    That is VERY good news AlmostGreta, thank you for sharing it with us :) (I heard a similar story concerning Syrian refugees in Sweden and/or Finland, I believe, and similar to Germany in the Netherlands as well, see here). This is a great time to be a Christian isn't it, and a great time to act on behalf of so many of His children who haven't yet come to know Him, both in deed and in prayer .. Luke 10:2.

    Yours in Christ,

    "There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name
    under heaven that has been given among men
    by which we must be saved”

    Acts 4:12

      Yes, given a free choice, there are a number of Muslims who turn to Christ. I read somewhere that Muslims are very religious by nature, so it isn't a huge stretch for them to turn to Christianity. They still get persecuted in Europe by other Muslims though. I keep them in my prayers...

          I know someone who is Iranian who converted to Christianity and moved to Europe. He decided to pass as white by dying his hair blond so he won't be recognized as middle eastern by the European Muslims. He dont really wanted to hide is ethnicity but he does this for safety. There are actually Christians in Iran, The Christian women there wears hijab so they can fit in and also pass from discrimination.
