Mustafas miracle

North Africa

Mastafa and Nabi

Mustafa* and Nabi* were friends growing up who were both Muslim. Mustafa was Nabi's teacher for their holy book. Through an incredible encounter of God’s power, Mustafa became a believer.

Nabi's uncle told him that Mustafa had become an infidel. Nabi's Muslim community conspired with Nabi to kill Mustafa and told him they would take him to a neighbouring country to be safe from the local authorities after he killed Mustafa.

So Nabi invited Mustafa to spend the night at his home, as he had done many times before. After they went to sleep, Nabi waited for the right moment. Then he grabbed his knife and leaned over Mustafa to kill him.

Suddenly, Mustafa felt something warm run through his veins he woke up and looked Nabi in the eyes. Nabi felt a strong, invisible arm holding his wrist back. No matter how hard he tried, he physically could not stab Mustafa. Nabi threw the knife on the ground and the next morning repented and believed in the God who showed divine power to hold back his hand from killing his friend.

Now Nabi and Mustafa are both evangelists, travelling from village to village in their zone, spreading the love of Isa al-Masih (Jesus) with the people they find along the way.

Pray for:

• the many North African Muslims who are so close to coming to saving faith in Jesus Christ.

• God will shine his light into others' hearts, just as He did for Nabi, so that they will turn and follow Jesus.
