I met “Ben” a few weeks ago out in the community. We’ve just had a couple of pretty casual conversations, so I was a bit surprised the other day when he introduced me to a friend of his, “Tara” with the comment, “I told her she needs to be a new member of your congregation”. In the next few minutes I understood why tara needed to be a part of our congregation… she was battling a crack cocaine addiction and really wanted to get her life together and really needed to be around good people who would love and support her through her recovery. I thought it was a bit usual that Ben who had never been to our church would be so strongly recommending Mosaic to his friend.
Tara and I talked about Jesus. We talked about how much He cared about her and about His power to free people from habits and addictions. As we talked about Jesus, Tara looked over to Ben for affirmation. Ben said “Don’t look at me, I’m a Muslim.” I did not know that.
God does work in mysterious ways. I thought it was kind of fun to have a Muslim recruiting people to come Mosaic to find the life changing power of Jesus that could break the chains of addiction in their lives. Please pray for Tara and Ben.
Please pray for us. We need to raise about $10,000 in the next few weeks so that we can continue to reach neighbors like Ben and Tara.
