Muslim Woman Becomes Christian
This intelligent Muslim woman, Priscilla (not her real name for her protection), lives in a country that is surrounded by Russia, China, and the Middle East. As soon as she enrolled in WEI, she said to her Internet teacher, “Thank you for praying for me. I don’t know how to pray.”
About her own religion, Priscilla said, “I’ve tried to read Koran, but I feel I am not ready to accept it.” But when she was shown that the Bible predicted the coming of an eternal King 700 years in advance, she readily accepted it. She was excited in later lessons to learn about Jesus’ miracles, and she declared, “He was the Son of God, the true King. He demonstrated his divine power to prove that God had sent him.”
But she was confused about something. She said, “I am not afraid to change my belief; I am ready to do that. But what will happen when I will die? I don’t afraid to die, but I think about the funeral ceremony. All my family relatives are Muslims, and if I turn secret Christian and they not know about it, they will do my funeral by Muslim traditions. So that is why I am confused.”
The teacher set her mind at rest explaining that the funeral won’t make any difference because, as a Christian, she won’t be there. She will be safe in heaven. Her teacher continued to encourage her to become a Christian. She finally replied, “How is it possible to become a Christian? Tell me.”
After her teacher explained how to become a Christian, she wrote, “People need to be baptized to get God’s forgiveness. . . . Only Jesus can save people from Satan.”
She was baptized in secret in her bathtub. Her teacher gave her a Christian name to use just between the two of them, and to protect her identity. “I like the name Priscilla you gave me,” she said.
