Many Muslim Refugees in Europe are Suddenly Finding Jesus

This is really a great encouragement. As we continue to share trusting the Lord to wake His Church up. Let the Gospel be preached and let souls be drawn into God's Kingdom. It shall come to pass says the Lord that the knowledge of the Lord shall spread all over the earth as waters cover the sea. Thank God for the European Church. They seem to have a better strategy. I pray that these conversions will be genuine.

Hundreds of Pakistanis and Afghans have been lining up at a local swimming pool in Hamburg, Germany, to be baptized as Christians. In the Netherlands and Denmark, as well, many are converting from Islam to Christianity, and the trend appears to be growing. Indeed, converts are filling up some European churches largely forsaken by their old Christian flocks.

Still, many preachers are pleased. The German pastor of the Evangelical-Lutheran church in Berlin calls the conversion phenomenon “a gift from God.” In his modest community a staggering 1,200 Muslims, mainly Afghans and Iranians, converted in just three years.

In Hamburg, where German ARD TV showed the Pakistanis and Afghans lining up to be baptized by the pastor of the Persian Church community, more than 600 people reportedly were received into the congregation.

There is no reliable overall figure for converts in northern Europe, but judging by reports from different media outlets, it is safe to assume the number runs into the thousands, maybe even tens of thousands who say they want the Gospel, “the good news,” offered by Jesus Christ.
