Today my Muslim friend is coming to visit. This is part of her last email to me:

Sister I have pure, clean intentions to show you the Truth of Islam….I have been honest with you that I am NOT open to Christianity what so ever in the sense that I have researched it and the Bible and I have already come to a conclusion and reconfirmed the Truth as I knew it .
My point of retelling you this is that we have to decide where we are going from here……….

Tony had said to me in the first meeting “If you can prove to me…this this this…..then I will become a Muslim today”………..was he serious or just joking? He looked serious and I hope he is still open to this chal! lenge………and God Willing, if your hearts are OPEN to receiving this guidance then InshaAllah ,Allah SubhanaWathala will guide you into the Light out of the Darkness that you are so deeply in.
All I can do is try……and all is upto Allah SWT.

Allah Hafiz

She also attended a Sunday morning meeting with us and endured the “blasphemes”… the attention given by men…

You know what? I love her zeal and persistence in trying to win one. Dealing with her has showed me more and more that unless the Lord draws her there is no amount of preparation, argument, or proof I can present that can change her mind and make her open to the gospel.

May the Lord be glorified in this precious soul.
