This is the third time we have reported on this story about that missionary’s daughter who was kidnapped by Muslims and then died but saw Jesus, and He healed and restored her to life.
In another miraculous development, the four Muslims who did the crime have now not on only apologized for their crimes, but they have renounced Islam and are becoming Christians, much to the anger of the local Muslim Imam:
Muslims radicals responsible for performing the female genital mutilation (FGM) of a 14-year-old Christian girl have asked for forgiveness and embraced the faith they once hated, a new report has revealed.
Over the weekend, Muslims in West Africa arrived at the house of Yoonus, a missionary with Bibles for Mideast, and explained that since they kidnapped and mutilated his teenage daughter, Lydia, they had experienced a series of bizarre incidents.
They revealed that all the women who had been involved in the procedure seemed to have gone mad, shrieking and seeing blood everywhere. In turn, the men who took part in the incident suffered nightmares, lack of sleep and extreme anxiety.
Convinced that God’s anger was at the source of the trouble in their homes, the Muslims invited the imam of the local mosque to come to their houses and pray for healing (shifa). However, nothing worked.
When they finally decided they must visit Lydia and Yoonus to ask their forgiveness, the imam and community leaders advised against it. In desperation, the men went anyway, and begged Yoonus to pray over them and give them peace of mind.
The missionary explained that forgiveness from God alone would heal their hearts and homes, and urged the Muslims to confess their sins before Him.
“You will be saved and you will also be healed if you accept Him as your savior and Lord,” Yoonus said.
The Muslims listened quietly and intently as he told his own story of coming to Christ, and then confessed their sins before Jesus and accepted Him as saviour and Lord.
Lydia also shared her remarkable experience of healing with her persecutors and prayed over them, allowing them to leave in peace. The report notes that the imam and the community aren’t pleased with the conversions and asks believers worldwide to pray for the Lord’s mighty protection over the new believers. (source)
I said it before and I will say it again: ANYTHING is possible with God. If he can raise the dead and create the universe from nothing, he can certainly forgive these Muslim for their crimes, for that is why He came- to save the lost.
