"Many people are now following Jesus but they keep it quiet. They haven't gone public about it. They even have church in their own home... they'll serve communion to one another as they're watching TV.” -Gina Fadely
(The Middle East)—In a powerful story of redemption and grace, an Islamic State militant known for his brutal killing of Christians has converted to his victims' religion after dreaming of "a man in white" who offered him a dramatic message, according to one missionary's account.

"One of our YWAM workers in the Middle East was contacted by a friend earlier this year and they met up and he was introduced to an ISIS fighter who had killed many Christians already. I mean that's a horrible situation, and admittedly, he was probably on guard," Gina Fadely, director of Youth With A Mission Frontier Missions, Inc. (YWAM), said during a recent appearance on The Voice of the Martyrs Radio Network, Christian Post reported.
Fadely went on to reveal that the ISIS fighter confessed that prior to his conversion, he had "actually enjoyed" killing Christians.
"He told this YWAM leader that he had begun having dreams of this man in white who came to him and said, 'You are killing my people.' And he started to feel really sick and uneasy about what he was doing," Fadely continued. "The fighter said just before he killed one Christian, the man said, 'I know you will kill me, but I give to you my Bible.' The Christian was killed and this ISIS fighter actually took the Bible and began to read it. In another dream, Jesus asked him to follow Him and he was now asking to become a follower of Christ and to be discipled."
Kevin Sutter, the other YWAM director who appeared with Fadely on the VOM Radio program, shared that he has learned from one of his leaders in the Arab world that there is a "spiritual hunger" that was "unprecedented" among Muslims.
