Years after he helped organize the 9/11 terror attacks, violence caught up to Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan. His compound was raided by the U.S. military and he was killed.

But earlier this year, Mission Cry partners went to Abbottabad for a very different reason: sharing the story of Jesus. They gave 2,000 Bibles to people living in 500 homes around the site of Bin Laden’s former compound.

Jason Woolford says, “We have 100 Muslims outside of the compound who’ve given their life to the Lord Jesus. We had one woman that looked at the Bible (she had never seen a Bible in her life) and said, ‘I don’t know what God is in this book. But the one that I’m serving is false.’ And she ended up giving her life to the Lord.”

Many of these people had never been able to own a Quran, so receiving a Bible was a special experience, Woolford says.
