Muslims seem jealous of Christians in Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan (MNN) — It’s a time when many Muslims are searching for their god. But, Christians in Kazakhstan were using Ramadan, the Muslim holy month, as a time to share the message of the Gospel.

That message was met with some resistance. Bible Mission International’s Mark Remschisel says Christians were able to share Christ with Muslims, who were searching for god during Ramada, Islam’s holiest month.

“It caused a little bit of anxiety on the part of some of the Muslim leaders” says Remschisel. He says, “Some of our teams were detained. Also, two women were invited to go into the school district. Those young ladies are now being faced with a fine and they’re trying to process some other legal proceedings again them.”

Remschisel says Muslim leaders seem to be jealous of what Christians are doing there. “The local believers are having a powerful impact in these communities and that’s not true of Islam. The people watch believers come in and do reconstruction and see cows and pigs and chickens being given. It sparks a question in their mind.” And, those questions are opening doors to sharing Christ.
