Mark Brink, shares about how his ministry works to better reach the Muslim community with the Gospel of Christ. Understanding those with a different faith can take time and energy, but for all to come to know Jesus makes the work worth it. Also, Mark mentions that the harvest within the Muslim community has been great, with many coming to accept Christ.
Throughout the episode, he discusses how the Lord placed a burden on him to reach the Muslim community with the Gospel. By coming into contact with different Muslims or those working closely with Islamic groups, Mark began to understand God’s heart for them. Just like anyone else, Muslims need Jesus.
