Dear Faithful Prayer Partners,
We are overwhelmed with gratitude for our prayer and financial partners, and for the grace of God which continues to shine across the Muslim world! More than 100 years ago God birthed Call of Hope to serve on the cutting edge of reaching Muslims with the Gospel message. We have seen God intervene countless times over the past century, transforming the lives of those far from Him in some of the most difficult and dangerous places in the world. God gave our early mission leaders a new idea, to equip former Muslims, miraculously saved by His grace, to faithfully proclaim the Gospel and demonstrate the love of Jesus to Muslims desperate to hear the Good News! And now, more than ever, we see how effectively God is using that same idea today!
Rather than sending traditional missionaries from the Western world, Call of Hope reaches Muslims with the Word of God and the message of salvation in Christ through local Believers, all theologically trained and most of whom are former Muslims themselves!
Just as the apostle Paul took advantage of his status as both a Jew and a Roman citizen to minister to both Jewish and Roman audiences, Call of Hope Frontline Workers are uniquely equipped and positioned to reach out to their Muslim neighbors because they know their culture, their language, and of course the viewpoints of Islam.
Prior to Paul’s conversion, he was dedicated to persecuting early Christians. God worked a miracle in Paul’s heart on the road to Damascus, and today He is still working the same miracle in the lives of those antagonistic to the Gospel. We have seen God transform former ISIS fighters, Muslim religious leaders, and others who are the most unlikely to receive the truth of Jesus.
As we reflect upon God’s faithfulness in the past, we are excited to see all He will do through Call of Hope in the days ahead! Psalm 127:1 declares "Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." In the same way, we recognize that we cannot continue our work in the Islamic world without the faithful support of our prayer partners.
As we embark on a new year of ministry to Muslims, would you commit to praying with us, beginning with just one week? A seven-day prayer guide with specific prayer points for each day is available by clicking the link below.
