The past two weeks my husband and I have been in Malaysia so that he could teach some classes. In the area where we were, it is illegal to witness to Muslims. If a native Malaysian witnessed to a Muslim, he or she would go to jail for three years. If a visitor was founding witnessing to a Muslim, he or she would be kicked out of the country. I passionately prayed that I would conduct myself with wisdom, but that I would also make the most of any opportunity.
We had four nights of relaxation before we went to the school. I was reading by the pool (yes, it was wonderful!) and a lady from England plopped down next to me and said, "I just want to be friendly because this is our last day here." I ended up talking to her for an hour and then moving over to where her husband and two teenage boys were sitting, where we talked for two more hours. It was natural to talk about the different religions in Malaysia by observing the many different kinds of dress and customs. The conversation opened up easily to be able to share the gospel in depth and to show evidence of the truth of the Bible, who Jesus is and of His resurrection.
