As Libya degenerates into all-out civil war there has been an influx of refugees risking their lives to cross the Med. to the safety of Europe. Once completely closed to missionary activity, the terrible events afflicting their country are causing an increasing number of Libyans to come into contact with Christians reaching out to them with Christian compassion.  And history shows that wherever Christians reach out in love for the long-haul, people–irrespective of their cultural or religious background–come to faith. Christian truth and Christ-like love: an irresistible combination, particularly against a backdrop of civil war and ISIL-like inhumane brutality and cultural barbarity.
