Reaching Hamid Part 2

In last week’s episode, we talked about Hamid’s story of coming into faith. As he was finishing his studies in India and about to go back to Iran, their youth camp group committed to pray for him every day as he went back to Iran. Even though he felt pressure from his family, he was resolute in his Christian faith. Justin continued to pray for him so he will never get weak and he will be more strong and faithful to God.


What attracted Hamid was the worship. He was led to a living relationship with God by watching other followers of Jesus worship Jesus. It made him curious and created opportunities for discussion between him and Justin. It was attractive for him to see the believers’ passion for the Lord. Seeing the believers’ love and passion for the Lord made a huge impact on Hamid.


Justin shares some practical things that anyone can do in reaching foreign born internationals like Hamid in our community. Praying for them is the first and one of the simplest acts that anyone can do. Pray for them to give their lives to Christ and point them to Jesus. Another thing is to introduce them to other believers and just let God work in that new relationship. One more important thing is to show them real generosity and to never give up on them. There will always be someone if you'll just keep asking, if you’ll just keep building friendships, there will be someone who is going to be ready. That someone will become a seeker and become a follower of Christ. And when we reach the foreign born international living in the US, we can then partner with them to fulfill the great commission.
