Acts 17:26-27, TLB
From one man He created all the nations throughout the whole earth. He decided beforehand when they should rise and fall, and He determined their boundaries. His purpose was for the nations to seek after God and perhaps feel their way toward Him and find Him...

Pray that Saudi Muslims in the US will truly seek and find God while they have the chance.

Saudi Arabs in San Diego, CA

by BKS, guest writer with Global Gates

As I strolled across the campus where I teach English as a Second Language, I saw one of my Saudi students, “H”, approaching me with his smartphone’s camera eye outstretched and pointed right at me! Before I knew it, I was on a Skype call to Mecca with “H’s” big brother. After “H” said farewell to his brother, he gestured toward a picnic table. With an irresistible smile he tried to convince me of the wonders of the Qur’an. At one point, he played a YouTube video of his brother, a famous sheik in Mecca, beautifully reciting the Qur’an (Muslims hold that the singing of the Qur’an has supernatural powers over the listener). Eventually, however, the Holy Spirit transformed our conversation into a compelling discussion of Jesus!
“H” is one of 60,000 of Saudi Arabia’s best and brightest college students that God has brought to America. In San Diego, over 1,000 make up this unique harvest field, temporarily separated from their home country where the strictest form of Islam is promoted, Bibles are forbidden, and honor killings for those who stray from the faith are the norm.

Pray the Lord will send laborers to share the gospel person to person with these Saudis. Pray that Saudis will take the gospel back home, plant churches, and fan the flames of revival from Mecca to the entire Muslim world!
