Rotis with a side order of Bible
I was teaching a Bible class in the evenings in Phuket, South Thailand. I had extra time during the day and so would frequent a Roti shop run by a young Muslim man. This man impressed me because he had a large Koran set out prominently on the table. I told him I enjoyed telling the stories concerning the various Nabi (prophets) of the Bible. I started by sharing the story of Abraham and Isaac from Genesis 22. He then asked me if I knew any story about Joseph and so I told him Genesis 39:16-28 (encounter with Potiphar’s wife). Next he wondered about Solomon, so I told him 1 Kings 3:16-28 (two prostitutes and a baby). After that he began to give me free rotis in exchange for a story like that of the flood of Noah. Do pray that the church in Phuket will follow up on this young man so that he might truly come to know Isa Al-Masih.
