Al-Qaeda is reported to have a training camp on one of the islands while the Islamic terrorist group Abu Sayaff is working to indoctrinate area youth and establish an independent Islamic state.In the face of these terrorist efforts, young people have become an open door for the gospel. At a recent youth camp, native missionaries led five young Muslims to Christ. They were baptized and sent home where they immediately began sharing their faith in Jesus with friends and family despite danger of reprisals. Through contacts made by these brave new believers, native missionaries were able to enter Muslim territories for the first time to preach and disciple converts. They started an underground church for former Muslims and smuggled hundreds of Bibles and hymnals throughout the territories. Missionaries working among the predominantly Muslim Maranao tribe have also seen many come to Christ through compassion projects such as literacy training and medical assistance.From the news flow at Intercessors Network
This is an amazing breakthrough and the only explaination is that it is engineered by God. Praise God. If it is within His will, He will make a way! We must pray there will be no backlash by Muslims against these new Christian young people.
