From the Frontlines: A Q&A with Ash

Muslim Outreach

From North America to North Africa, Leading The Way employs on-the-ground teams to follow-up with our listeners and viewers. Our new MY Journal column, From the Frontlines, shares a behind-the-scenes look at what these teams are doing every day.


MEET ASH, Leading The Way’s North American Follow-up Coordinator. As a former Muslim from the Middle East, Ash knows how to minister to Muslims who contact us to learn more about the Gospel.


How did God lead you to this role at Leading The Way?

My connection with Leading The Way started even before I came to Christ. Around 1997, I listened to Dr. Youssef’s dual-language radio programs to learn English. As a Muslim and somebody who never read the Bible, Dr. Youssef’s teaching was very practical. After more than a year of listening to Christian programs and debating with God, I came to Christ.

I never thought I would be part of Leading The Way, but in 2010, I began helping my mentor, George, answer the emails, Facebook messages, and phone calls coming in from Leading The Way’s satellite channel -- following up with viewers who either want to learn more about Christ or attack Christianity. I also maintain relationships with our Arabic broadcast partners within North America.

Muslim Outreach

What is one of your most memorable follow-up experiences?

There is a guy from Libya who followed up with us for about eight months. After experiencing intense persecution, he fled the country and started a church in Turkey. He did not just accept Christ for himself, but is spreading the Good News and leading other believers from a Muslim background. I think for those of us who come from a Muslim background, the grace and mercy of Christ becomes the motivation to share the hope and Good News of Jesus’ salvation with our own nation.

How can our partners be praying for Leading The Way follow-up teams?

Our follow-up team is spread throughout the Middle East, North Africa, and North America. For some, there is freedom to do follow-up work. For others, it’s really tough. Security and safety for our teams and their families is number one. For our audience, there is also fear of what their families or communities will do if they come to Christ. Pray for the Holy Spirit to open their minds and give them the courage to contact our team.

Can Revival Begin with a Faithful Few?

From the desk of Dr. Michael Youssef

Throughout history, nations have been blessed by godly individuals. God blessed Egypt because of Joseph. He blessed Babylon because of Daniel. He blessed Persia because of Esther. From ancient Israel to the Great Awakenings in America and England, national repentance always precedes national revival.

Is it possible for a Christian minority to be a catalyst for national renewal? Not only is it possible -- it actually happened not long ago in Egypt, the country of my birth.

In January 2011, the Arab world was shaken by a season of uprisings called the Arab Spring. Egyptian president Mubarak was deposed and replaced by Morsi, an autocratic leader backed by the Muslim Brotherhood. Morsi granted himself unlimited power and unleashed chaos. Churches were fire-bombed. Christians were killed in the streets. The police refused to protect the Christian minority.

Across the land, an estimated 4 million Egyptian Christians held round-the-clock prayer meetings. Like the widow who besieged the judge in the parable of Luke 18, they told God, "We’re not letting You go until You save our nation!" God loves it when His children come boldly before His throne of grace -- and He answered their prayer in a dramatic way.

On June 30, 2013, protests erupted across Egypt. The BBC reported up to 33 million protesters thronging the streets. Morsi was arrested and Defense Minister al-Sisi later became president of Egypt. He has been kind toward Christians and has restored a sense of religious freedom. Although he is not a Christian, I believe his leadership is a tangible answer to prayer.

What if we followed the Egyptian example? What if we prayed around the clock, repenting of sin and asking God to bless our land? What if we asked God to draw millions to Himself? And what if He sent godly shepherds to the Supreme Court, the White House, Congress, and our state and local governments?

The options are clear: we can turn away and ignore the crumbling of our nation’s Biblical foundation -- or we can act! Will you join with me in praying for a spiritual revival on American soil? Will you partner with Leading The Way as we actively sow into the harvest field here at home?

Revival begins with a faithful few. May it begin with you and me.

Your partner in the Gospel,

Indonesia:

“Praise God, I’m very grateful to God for the Navigator. I feel a tremendous benefit for the growth of my faith and I’ve become closer to God. I always bring the Navigator wherever I go. I get a lot of understanding of how to live in God’s will and shared the teachings with my friend who was having family problems. Thank you Dr. Youssef for the Navigator.”

“I listened to Dr. Youssef today and realized how much God touches my heart when I listen to his messages. I am so happy that he is so honest and tells us the real truth about our God. He has changed my life today. The Lord is really talking to my heart! Thank you Dr. Youssef for waking me up!”

Iraq:

“I’ve been verbally persecuted and deprived of food and clothes. I’ve also been receiving death threats over the phone. I live in a very Islamic area that has no churches and I’m only surrounded by Muslims. Thank you for listening to me and hearing my story, and for all your prayers. Thanks for sending me books that encourage me to grow and mature in faith.”
