Brother Andrew, famous for bringing the gospel behind the Iron Curtain, now is taking it to the Taliban. In this report from Joel News he describes how:

“I just go there. I find out where they live and show up at the doorstep. They ask what I come for, and I tell them about Jesus. We’ve become way too diplomatic and careful in our approach. Next week I hope to visit the Taliban again. They now say: ‘Anne, this is your second home.’

“One day I visited a large, notorious Qur’an school where 90 percent of the graduates immediately join the ranks of the Taliban and al-Qaeda. A war factory of human weapons, targeted to wage war against the infidels. I arrived at a square where hundreds of these students waited in line for military exercise. The head of the school and a minister of the government gave a short talk, and suddenly the microphone was handed to me: ‘Anne, it’s your turn.’

“I was surprised as I only came to visit. … I told them about Jesus. I believe every Christian should be able to speak about his faith in Jesus unprepared for at least 15 minutes. It would be pity to waste such an opportunity.

“After my talk, the leader of the Qur’an school, also a high official in the Taliban and government circles, came up to me and said: ‘Anne, would you please come back and tell us more about Jesus, also to our graduate class?’ I asked the leader how many guys he had in his final class, and he said 1,300. This is an amazing mission field.”
