More Information Please

A frontline worker shares the story of a friend of their family who had often been in their home. At times she had joined them in Bible discussions and had even prayed with them, so she knew they were Christians. One day she told them she had been looking for a group that would teach the closest to the Holy Scriptures, one “that followed the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation” she explained.  

She had concluded from her internet search that a group called Seventh-day Adventists adhere the closest to God’s Word of any she had found. The worker was astonished and mentioned at the time that they were Seventh-day Adventists, but for some reason she didn’t fully register their comment.

Later the worker forwarded a link to her in Arabic that gave good information about Adventists and their beliefs. She messaged, “It is about this church that I would like more information.” When he responded that they were Seventh-day Adventists, she appeared surprised and replied instantly, “Surely God has sent you to help me in my spiritual journey… I already consider myself a part of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.” 

Even with praise for what God has already done, the worker appeals, “There are difficulties and dangers ahead, but please pray that God will protect her and show us how to encourage her.”
