A Kairos story
DURING A KAIROS COURSE in a predominantly Muslim country, a Muslim background follower of Jesus was elated to discover that he could be a follower of Jesus and still retain the cultural identity of his people group and of his family and relatives. Soon after, he led his family and two Muslim religious teachers to Christ. They continued to be part of their cultural community and witnessed effectively for Christ. To date there are five hundred followers of Jesus from this people group that, until quite recently, had been sealed off from the Gospel.
