What happens when devout Muslims hear about Jesus?

As the radical Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram continues its rampage of death and destruction in Nigeria, a global radio ministry is receiving miraculous testimonies of salvation in the midst of terror.

The Tide radio ministry, an international outreach committed to worldwide evangelism and discipleship that "aims to lead as many people as possible into a life-transforming relationship with Jesus Christ," broadcasts its program in the official language of Islam in Nigeria.

Director Don Shenk tells OneNewsNow his organization is hearing amazing news.

"The most debase, calloused killer God can reform," Shenk asserts.

For example, The Tide has heard from a man who was a devout Muslim and belonged to Boko Haram. While listening to the radio, "he hears about Jesus Christ, and he hears something that's different than the message that he has learned all his life. He turned and actually gave his life to Christ," the ministry’s director reports. "He went and purchased a Bible and began studying the Bible."

A Muslim cleric also underwent a transformation and is now praying for all Muslims.

"He writes, 'My prayer is that they settle for nothing less than discovering the pure truth which starts with this: God took on human flesh and died on a cross for all of us,'" Shenk relays.

He encourages Christians to remember that their prayers are effective.
