I took a confessing Kurdish Christian, Abdu, who is not a member of a church, to a local church worship service.
In my role, I have the privilege of partnering more closely with a national brother, David, who is doing broad-seed-sowing among our people group. For us, broad-seed-sowing means putting out ads on social media, people requesting good materials, and our partner sending it to them.
