Luke 1:34-35
“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel, “Since I am a virgin?” The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the holy one to be born will be called the Son of God.”

Tito asked the same question that the Virgin Mary once asked. In today’s world, Muslims commonly misunderstand the idea of Jesus being God’s Son. This passage from Luke can help them to better understand.

Pray for workers to use the Scriptures to help Muslims understand the true nature of Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Missionary Biography—Tito

“My name is Tito, and I was born into a Muslim Malinke family. When I was young, I went from Senegal where I had been living to Guinea Bissau to help my brother build his house. He had promised to send me to France once the house was finished.”
“It was during this time that I found an evangelistic group preaching that Jesus is the Son of God. So I asked the man: “Why do you say that Jesus is the Son of God if God never had a woman? We only recognize Jesus as a prophet.” Right then the man handed a New Testament to me and asked me to wait for him until he finished. When he finished he began to share how Jesus is the Son of God and invited me to his evangelism group.”
“I began to go to the missionary’s home regularly. He began to teach me a lot about Jesus and especially about John 14:6. As I was interested, I too took him to the place I stayed at, where he would read portions of the Bible to me. My brother then got upset with me, and kicked me out. He said that we couldn’t read the Bible in his home.”
