Although Eastern Orthodoxy is by far the majority faith in this city, it’s not uncommon at all to run into Muslims here or to see women wearing a veil on the streets. In fact, somebody once told me that there are four times the amount of Muslims in Bucharest as there are Evangelical Christians. I have no idea if that statistic is real or not.
Anyhow, last night, I had two really good experiences getting to speak with Muslims about the things of God and challenge them concerning Jesus’ claims.
Majid is from Iran. He left seven years after the Islamic Revolution, spent a few years in Sweden (where he learned the language and translated then published a book from Persian into Swedish), and then moved to Romania. I’ve been editing the newest incarnation of his book, the English translation. Besides enjoying the extra income, I’ve really appreciated my conversations with Majid. I’ve been learning a lot about life in the Middle East, especially Iran and Iraq.
