God created a massive dust storm in October to deliver Islamic converts from the militants who hunted them, according to a report from Bibles For Mideast. The ministry claims that immediately after a mass baptism for newly saved Christians, militants surrounded their bus and fired shots.
“About 50 people, including baptism candidates, attended the service,” a new believer reports. “After the baptism service and prayers, we all entered the bus to return back to our house church for the worship service and the Lord’s Supper. Suddenly some militants . . . started shooting with guns toward us.”
The converts and their leaders feared the worst. “Really, we did not know what to do, but started praying to the Lord for His mighty protection,” the report continues. That’s when the wind started to pick up, and dust began to swirl around them.
“Suddenly we saw a giant dust storm form behind our bus. At first we [were] all afraid of . . . the dust storm. We thought we may not be able to go beyond and [would] be held by the militants. But praise the Lord! Praise the Lord again and again! We all felt that the Lord Jesus Christ appeared upon the dust storm as a Mighty and Wonderful Man showing His protecting and lovely hands toward us with a sweet smile. Jesus saved us. He Himself blocked the road of militants in the form of a dust storm,” the report reads.
According to the Bibles for Mideast website, the ministry is the fruit of prayers and fasting for the evangelism of the Middle East. It is an underground mission that distributes Bibles and establishes house churches.
