Brother Harold has served as a gospel worker among Muslims in Central Asia for 15 years and has been working in the US for the past five years to recruit, train and mobilize more workers into the world’s spiritual harvest fields. He challenges Christians to be involved in the spreading of the gospel and to send laborers into the harvest. Harold shares a story of the fruit of his family’s labor in Central Asia and encourages listeners to reach unreached nations right here in the US through immigrant communities. He suggests ways to pray for more opportunities for the gospel, for our persecuted church family, and for current and future missionaries. Bob and Kasey, who were enjoying their retirement when God called them to minister to a closed Muslim nation, are also featured in this episode. Harold encourages listeners to request a complimentary copy of VOM’s 2023 Global Prayer Guide to learn how to specifically pray for persecuted Christians in 2023.
Susanne Geske was shocked to learn that her husband, Tilmann, had been murdered along with two Turkish Christians, Necati Aydin and Uğur Yüksel. The five murderers were arrested at the scene of the crime and Turkish media members rushed to Malatya to report on the “missionary massacre.” Susanne was able to use this opportunity to share the gospel of forgiveness and the love of Jesus, and her living example of forgiveness was broadcast all over Turkey. 15 years later, Susanne shares how God has become a father to her children and looked after her needs. She also gives an update on the killers’ trial and the search for justice. Many Muslims are searching privately online to learn more about Jesus and Christianity, and VOM Radio has shared a conversation with Semse Aydin, widow of Necati. Todd Nettleton wrote about meeting Susanne and Semse in Turkey just seven weeks after the murder of their husbands in his book, When Faith is Forbidden.
