Recently my family and I rode the metro train from the center of town to our neighborhood, about 45 minutes away. As usual, both our boys fell asleep. My husband was standing, holding our 4-year-old, and I was sitting trying to keep our younger son as comfortable as possible. Normally not a problem, but at the time I was 8 1/2 months pregnant, trying to hold a very large 2-year-old in a catatonic state.

This past Friday Say Hello workers enjoyed mingling with Evangel University at the Missions Fair. We connected with numerous students who expressed interest in outreach to Muslim women. As always, their energy and enthusiasm inspired great conversations and hearty laughter. We wear our joy on our sleeves, and when we run into others of similar interest and passion, we relish serving all the more.
Every encounter counts! Read about what happened when one woman said "hello".

For some excellent training that will enable your friendships with Muslim women, join the Behind the Veil: Women's Training in Nashville, Tenn., this Saturday, September 21.
Last summer the Lord opened my eyes to see Muslims as He sees them—people in need of a Savior. We all know about 9/11, we know about Abraham and Ishmael, and we know the general American view of Muslims—“they are all terrorists.” My heart needed changing; I looked at Muslims with suspect and little or no concern.
The Muslim woman's veil is not meant to marginalize or stir fear. Essentially, a Muslim woman veils to communicate her modest practices and her desire to please God and honor community. Christ followers who can relate to these core values enjoy loving friendships with wonderful Muslim women because they are able to help seekers find Truth.
