Sharing in Azerbaijan

Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International, and you’re listening to Share Life Today.

In the predominantly Muslim country of Azerbaijan, something amazing happened. A family was visiting one of the major cities, and their friend asked Al-Sham if they could stay with him. Well, Al-Sham and his family are Christians, but he felt God telling them to open his home to them. When they were there, Al-Sham would invite them to sit and speak with him about God. He asked, “If you were to stand before God, and He asked you, ‘Why should I let you into my Heaven?’ what would you say?” Well, they replied that they didn’t know but hoped that the good things they did would be enough. Al-Sham then shared with them about God’s love through sending His Son, Jesus, to die in our place for our sins. And all who put their trust Him alone receive the free gift of eternal life. He asked if they wanted this, and the whole family said yes and prayed with him! For resources to help you share the Gospel, too, visit our website at That’s
