Last month I went with a friend to eat at a Buryan restaurant. Buryan is a traditional Kurdish food where lamb is smoked in a pit that is underground for a long period of time. This makes the meat tender and very good. Knowing Buryan is a typical Kurdish food, my friend and I sought out a time to test out this restaurant in hopes of talking with the owner.
When we walked in and ordered, we were the only customers in the restaurant, and within minutes we were sharing the gospel with Yahya (waiter) and Shemus (owner). We were able to recount the good news of Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
As we were leaving the restaurant, the owner noticed a book in my friend’s hand and asked what it was about. The book was What is the Gospel? After our conversation and seeing what the book was about, he asked if he could read it. Walking out of that Buryan restaurant, we were leaving with full stomachs and a full heart.
