Last week at church, we had a visitor named Mohamed Ali. It’s actually a popular and revered name in the Muslim community. That is why the famous boxer Cassius Clay changed his name to Mohamed Ali when he became part of the Nation of Islam.
Mohamed Ali (the Malian, not the boxer), came to church at the invitation of Frank Arthur, the pastor that will be overseeing the church in our absence. Mohamed Ali is showing a lot of interest in Christianity and wants to attend our church regularly and learn more about Christ. Frank will be meeting with him weekly to do a personal Bible study and answer any questions about Christianity. Please be praying for Mohamed Ali as he seeks the Truth. This is a challenging uphill battle that is accompanied by persecution and suffering in Mali.
