What A Sneaky Way To Take the Gospel to Muslim North Africa!

There is a very sneaky way to get the gospel to people in closed countries. Once someone has it, it can’t be detected unless that country has government agents to personally check people’s cell phones. Apps are downloadable and usually undetectable. Once the person has it, he can access gospel materials from the privacy of his own home or a public coffee shop.

There is an app that offers the gospel message in several languages. It is called Waha. In the Arabic-speaking world, most people understand the Egyptian dialect since they widely used it in newscasts and television shows. Waha allows people to hear and respond to a gospel message in their heart language, which in this case is a local dialect of Arabic. It is also translated into the languages of some of the Berber peoples of North Africa.

Waha not only provides gospel messages, but materials for discipling. Disciples can make more disciples, and who can make even more disciples. Those who produced Waha are trying to meet the greater demand for other languages. That is a good problem to have!

Let us pray fervently for:

  • Pray for the Lord to encourage those who produce Waha (the Bible, Joshua 1:9).
  • Pray for accuracy in new translations so Muslims will understand the eternal gospel (the Bible, Deuteronomy 4:6).
  • Pray for many to use these materials to disciple others who will make more disciples (the Bible, Isaiah 8:16).
