Interesting example of enculturation...

Abraham Sarker grew up in an Islamic culture in Bangladesh and chose to dedicate his life to Allah. But at age 15, he encountered God in a dream that made him question Islam and begin a search for truth. Sarker recalled hearing a voice that told him to look for a Bible. He searched diligently for a Bible four years, finally finding one in his own Bengali language when he moved to Florida to attend college. After reading the Bible and meeting with a missionary at his campus, he chose to become a follower of Christ. And his life radically changed.

I was a Muslim missionary, but now I am using the Muslim mission strategy to reach others for Christ. The Muslim strategy is to impact a community economically, religiously and politically. Now, this is my strategy to reach Muslims for Christ.
An interview with Abraham Sarker can be found HERE in the Baptist Standard.
