God is Moving: Hope Arabic Church

God is moving in hearts all across the world! 

On the far right of this photo stands a man from Kuwait whose search for the Christian faith brought him to our doorstep. With burning questions and a deep desire to learn more about Jesus, he scoured the internet for an Arabic church, and it was Hope Arabic Church that caught his eye. Despite reaching out to them, they somehow missed his messages. Eventually, this man decided he needed to meet them in person, so he booked a plane ticket and flew from Kuwait to Michigan to meet their pastor — Avdal Boktor, whom he followed on social media — at a Sunday morning service. 

After attending the Sunday service and meeting with Pastor Avdal, they welcomed him with open arms and answered his questions. They shared the message of salvation with him, and at the end of the meeting, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior.

From that moment on, they continued to guide and disciple him online, with him returning to Michigan three times for intensive courses on the basics of Christian faith. On April 9, 2023, he returned once more to be baptized.

Throughout this incredible journey, they have witnessed the power of God’s hand in bringing people together across oceans and cultures. Hope Arabic Church gives all the glory to God for using them as a church and reaching the Muslim world from their humble corner of America. May this story inspire all of us to reach out to those seeking the freedom only found in Jesus, and may we be a beacon of hope for those who are searching.
