"I was at peace with Islam," Asenath says. “I liked it. No, I loved it! This is normal in our culture. The Middle Eastern, Islamic culture is a culture of pride.” But then Asenath began having dreams about Jesus Christ.
“This made me afraid at the beginning,” she explains. “I never knew Jesus except from the couple of Quran verses that mention Him. I thought of Him as no more than a prophet who was sent to the Jews or Christians, I wasn’t even sure.”
Asenath's neighbor was a Christian, so she decided to ask her questions. Asenath recalls, “After having this conversation with my neighbor, I started understanding how Christians believe Jesus is God incarnated. My neighbor also referred me to Sara, who gave me a New Testament and studied it with me.”
A New Faith and a Prayer
Asenath beams, “I accepted Jesus as my Savior a couple months ago. Now, I am the only believer in my family. I am praying that they will begin having visions and dreams of my Lord Jesus as well. Sometimes my brother forces me to pray the Islamic prayers in front of him. I'm praying that one day I'll get to explain the New Testament to him, the same way Sara did with me.”
