Lamiya was blindsided.
She failed her medical entrance exam for college and was abandoned by her boyfriend. As her hopes for marriage and a successful career crumbled around her, the future suddenly seemed bleak and uncertain. The internet became a great distraction from the deep loneliness and disappointment she felt.
Today you can leverage the latest technology to help reach people like Lamiya who are turning to the internet, searching for hope.
Lamiya lives in a closed Central Asia country where only three percent of the population professes faith in Jesus Christ. Most people have never heard the Gospel. Despite living in a developing country, 80 percent of people in Lamiya’s country have access to the internet. Even more people use a mobile device or smartphone. And with the average internet user now spending nearly 7 hours a day on their device, we have an unprecedented opportunity to share the truth of Jesus in the most unreached region of the world.
A Global Heart Ministries Google Ad popped up during one of Lamiya’s online searches. It said, “Are you searching for hope?”
Lamiya thought she could use a little hope, so she clicked.
The ad took her to a Gospel presentation in her native language. The more Lamiya read, the more she was moved by what Jesus had done for her. She longed to be right with God. And she had to know more about Jesus and His love.
So she answered yes to praying for salvation. She nervously typed in her contact information and waited.
After three minutes she received a text message from Fatima, a team member in the Global Heart Ministries Connect Center. Fatima received Lamiya’s contact information and location and reached out to her.
The two women connected and began an important conversation. Fatima shared the hope of Jesus and encouraged Lamiya. She helped Lamiya have a deeper understanding of salvation, and Lamiya confirmed her commitment to Jesus!
