Over 200 Muslims come to faith every year
A man active among the Arabic speaking asylum seekers from the Middle East and for many years supported by ‘Stichting Gave’ is Marten. He was raised in Northern Iraq, but at a certain moment arrested by the Security Service. Because he proclaimed the Gospel and gave away a lot of Bibles. Prosecuted by the Islamic Party. Tortured and taken prison. Fled in 1997 to the Netherlands and since 2014 active as evangelist/pastor. First supported by Stichting Gave, since 1 September 2016 working for Stichting Middle East Support Ministeries. Operative under the name Agsanal Karma, Marten and his team of volunteers see about 200 Muslims come to faith in Christ every year. By their strategy of winning, building, training and sending, they are building an army of dedicated Arabic Christians, who have only one desire, that is to reach out to their fellow countrymen and people speaking their language. Their desire is to make all asylum seekers disciples of Jesus.
