Love Your Muslim Neighbor

"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. "
Isaiah 9:2   

A light has dawned on Muslims.   The time for Muslims' salvation from the Lord is at hand!   There are more converts to Christianity from Islam today than at any point in history.

Speakers:  Dr. Berty Abdelmasih, Dr. Jay Smith, and Dr. Ebrahim and Hoda El Sayeh
 

About the Speakers:

Dr. Rev. Jay Smith has been working with Muslims for over 37 years, the last 23 in London, England. Most of his time he spends travelling to numerous countries to teach Christian/Muslim Apologetics and Polemics, much of which he has learned from weekly forays to the world famous Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park, London.
He is a visiting lecturer for the Oakhill College in London, the Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics, and the Wycliffe Hall, also in Oxford. He has taught apologetics at various religious schools and seminaries all over the world. Since 2001, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), as well as the Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) have used him to teach Islamics in the US, and Europe.
Jay has two masters’ degrees in divinity and Islamics, and a Phd in Christian/Muslim Apologetics/Polemics from the Melbourne School of Theology. He was also the International director for the Pfander Centre for Apologetics in London, England, and works for the Brethren In Christ World Mission and i2 ministries in the USA.

You can see much of his written material at the ‘Pfander’ web site: https://www.pfander.uk/.

 

Dr. Ebrahim Elsayeh came to know Christ from Islam in 1965 as he was a student at the Dental School of Alexandria University, in the Northern city of Alexandria, Egypt. He was discipled by great men of God in Egypt. He suffered persecution for his faith when he became a Christian. At that time it was very rare to hear about such a conversion to Christ. He served the Lord in full time capacity for more than 45 years. He is gifted in Evangelism and disciple making. I had the privilege to be mentored and discipled by Ebrahim, and many of us (those discipled by him) are serving the Lord in different capacities all over the globe. His love for God and Christian life is an example and infectious Christianity to thousands of Arabs everywhere. His wife Hoda came to know Christ from Islam in 1977. Together they have been serving the Lord for more than 35 years now. They have different Arabic TV programs about discipleship and follow up with Muslim converts. They are speaking in many conferences all over the world. Today we have thousands and millions of Muslims coming to Christ and this couple was prepared from the Lord for such a time like that.

This Testimony is written by Berty Abdelmasih, The Director of OTC and CMR.


Dr. Berty Abdelmasih was born and raised in Egypt. He holds a degree in Medicine from Egyptian University, a Bachelor of Theology, and Post-Graduate Diploma in comparative religious Studies from London Bible College (LBC), now London School of Theology.
Berty has previously served as a missionary doctor in Nigeria, pastor in Cairo and England, and worked in an organization aimed at helping the persecuted church. Currently, Berty serves as the Director of the Outreach Training Center (OTC); a new ministry aimed at helping and training churches to reach out to peoples of other faiths with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Berty is also the Director of CMR (Christians-Muslims Relation) and Missionary in Residence of McLean Bible Church. Berty is a guest lecturer on Islam and Muslims outreach in different schools including Liberty University.
Berty and his wife, Salwa, serve with the OTAN (Outreach to Asia Nationals) as their mission board and Capital Baptist Church, Annandale is their sending church. We believe in Helping Nationals to reach Nationals.
