One day, Elisabeth had to collect Karen from the Grand Kenyon (Mall). Tino had to get up early the next morning to work, so he asked his mother to do it and she really did not want to go out, but went never the less. As she was traveling along behind another car, the car in front suddenly braked violently. Someone had run across the road and he had nearly run him over, and as he came to a stop he screamed at the offending jaywalker! We both stopped parallel to one another at the lights, and the driver, who was still shaking, exclaimed, “Did you see this idiot, I could have killed him!” to this I replied, “Brother, God’s mercies are new every morning. God had mercy on you. If we lift up our eyes to the hills, we will see our help, and this help is Yeshua” The lights changed and we both drove off.
One day, Najeeb was sitting upstairs, and young Daniel was serving downstairs when an Italian family with a ten-year-old boy entered into their shop. Najeeb could hear snatches of English and Italian as they tried to communicate. he was trying to prepare his Sunday sermon, but felt impelled to go downstairs and greet them. HE noticed that the boy was on crutches. They related that they had come from Milan, and wanted to buy some presents before they went back. Then Najeeb asked why the boy was on crutches, and the mother explained that he had a disease of to one leg for five years. So Najeeb asked if they have ever prayed for him! Well, they hadn’t, but had felt that perhaps on their visit to the Holy Land, because God was here, He might heal him. Najeeb said that Jesus could heal him, but they have to believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and then he asked if he could pray for the boy.to which they assented. At this point Najeeb knelt down, and began to pray in Arabic with his whole heart, and he could feel the power of God. When Najeeb opened his eyes the mother was sobbing. She said she understood nothing, but God had touched her heart. They then asked Najeeb if they were Catholics, to which he replied that they were simply Christians who believed in Jesus. They were leaving for Italy the next day, but said that this day with the visit to the shop had been very special.
A. is a Muslim who studied at a Christian School, When he finished his studies, he got into trouble with the Law, and spent five years in jail, where he entered more fully into Islam and became very religious! One day he came into the bookshop and requested three books.
The names of God.
The Attributes of God
And The Trinity.
Unfortunately, we did not have even one of these books. However, Najeeb was there on all three occasions that he came into the bookshop, and was able to answer all his questions. He confessed that he did not find any satisfaction in Islam. Najeeb told him that God is love, not anger and that He does not differentiate in His love between Christians and Moslems. Our shop exists to help people like him and answer all their questions. We believe, that it was not by accident that A. came into the shop, and we see that God touches the hearts of them that seek Him. We promised that we would order the missing books and that he would have them shortly, please pray for him.
