Fayima*, a Syrian lady, served an OM team tea in her humble home. She had been a refugee for the last four years in a neighbouring country. Her husband is sick and cannot work so her two oldest sons are forced to work; earning money not just for her and her four children, but also for her husband’s second wife and their daughter.

As the team sat drinking tea, Fayima’s husband asked many questions about Jesus. In recent weeks, Fayima and her husband (and his second wife) all started attending a church and learning more about Jesus. That is all a miracle in itself, but what made this story stand out to the team was Fayima’s dream.

Before escaping Syria, Fayima was alone one night with her four children, afraid of the approaching war outside. As she fell asleep, she dreamt of a man — a religious man — she called him a ‘sheikh’. He was wearing a shepherd’s cloak and held a staff in one hand and a big open book in other. She didn’t know if this book was the Quran or another religious book. The man said to her: “Do not be afraid. I am with you and will keep you safe.”  Then He said: “In four or five years I will show you the light.” She woke up and felt full of peace but did not understand what the dream had meant.

It has been four full years since she left Syria. Fayima and her family are now in their fifth year since this dream and now she has seen the Light!

Please pray that all those in this household, including the children, will come into a living relationship with Jesus.
