Throughout the rest of March, we will be posting daily on Chinese Muslims, our prayer highlight at the next Secret Church gathering on March 29th. Join us as we learn more about who these people are and begin to pray for God to make His name known among this people group.

Once I was lost, but now I am found!

My name is Aaron and I want share my life with you. I was born in northwest China in a Muslim city to a Muslim family. But I didn’t know much about the Islamic culture until I left home. When I started college, I had two Muslim roommates in my dormitory. They asked me to be a real Muslim guy, so we went to the mosque on Fridays.

After college, I went back to my hometown. Sometimes when I felt down and sad, I went to the mosque to do the ritual prayers, but it didn’t help. I still felt sad because it was just a rite, a ceremony.

I had a very good friend who suggested that I read the Bible. She said, “If you read it, you will know more about the Lord. You will know His words, which may help you.” But I thought it was the Christian’s book, so as a Muslim, I must not read it. However, she told me, “You can make your own choice. If it is the truth, it is not afraid to be put under the light. If it is not the truth, you can choose to give it up. Give yourself a chance to know God.” And then I started to read it.

I felt like God was very kind to me, just as it is written in a song “Amazing Grace”: “Once I was lost, but now I am found, was blind, but now I see.” I felt so inspired, and then I came to Him. Now I want to spend all my life serving Him.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray that Aaron will grow daily in his walk with Jesus and that he will boldly proclaim the gospel to the Muslims around him.

  • Pray that God will form a Muslim-background church around Aaron so that he and other Muslim-background believers like him will be able to worship together.
