Many Muslims who came to the UK as refugees are converting to Christianity after having visions and dreams of Christ.
For many Muslim refugees to the UK, this will be the first Christmas they will spend as Christians. According to ChristianToday.com, a Christian church in Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent in the UK has been instrumental in ministering to these refugees and leading them to Christ.
Rev. Sally Smith is the vicar of St. Mark’s--the church ministering to the Christian converts. She says the church was a rather stagnant community until the UK’s Home Office began resettling dozens of refugees nearby.
The church now has a ministry welcoming Muslims who are new to the area and their community is thriving. Although those who minister to the refugees do not try to proselytize, many Muslims have accepted Christ due to the warm welcome and the kindness they are shown.
Many also have testified that they have had visions and dreams of Jesus.
"One man, Hassan, had a dream. In this dream, Jesus came to him as a light. He told him to come to this church and be baptised. He knew it was the Lord who had wrapped himself around him,” Smith shared.
"Another man saw Jesus in a dream and he was shown a picture of this very church,” said Smith.
Recently, St. Mark’s hosted a live nativity scene. The particularly incredible thing about this nativity was that all but one participant was a Muslim convert to Christianity. Some of the participants had even been baptized into their new-found faith the very same day they took part in the nativity.
Pray for Muslim refugees around the world, that they would find and embrace the love of Christ.
