ministering to the blind

last night we were back visiting with a Palestinian muslim man who lost his site. I'll say this up front - so far he has not regained his sight. We continue to contend.

However, last night we got to share with him that the same night we met him, the Lord opened the deaf ear of another muslim man (about 50 feet from his office). His faith was strengthened by the testimony.

We prayed for him two times last night - a team of us prayed for an extended time. The 2nd time was particularly powerful. I had shared that I believed the Lord really wanted to release His compassion as we prayed. Two of the team praying ended up weeping during that second prayer session. It was powerful - and it was particularly powerful for an Arab muslim man who'd NEVER experienced anything like that before.

The Lord opened a huge door to share the Gospel in a deep way - the need for the Cross, the atoning work of Christ and the Nature of His Kingdom.

Jesus has knit our hearts together with this precious man - join us in praying that Jesus' words would be true sooner rather than later - "the blind shall see".
