Bridges: Christians Connecting With Muslims

About 1.5 billion Muslims have little chance of hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Nearly 7 million of them call North America home. We are living in urgent times. Millions of Muslims around the world and across the street are searching for true peace that can only be found in Jesus. Muslims are coming to our borders, God is opening the door to reach them here.

Yvette Moy is Crescent Project's Metro D.C. area coordinator. She has been involved with Lutheran outreach to Muslims since 2009. Yvette has a love for Muslim people and a passion to share with them the love of Christ. Her greatest joy is to equip congregations and individuals to share the Gospel with their Muslim friends and neighbors and to fulfill Christ's command to make disciples of all nations.

Yvette has served on the Black, Urban, Multi-Ethnic Ministries Team, Spanish Language Missions Task Force, Multicultural Ministry Team and LINC Metro D.C. of the Southeastern District. Yvette led Hispanic Mission Development of Northern Virginia between 2008-10. She has served on two short-term mission trips to Haiti. In 2007, Yvette was part of the largest Lutheran delegation to visit China.

What is the Lutheran Lay Fellowship?

LLF is an organization for women and men, both lay and clergy, active in the Nation's Capital area. “As early as 1936, feeling there was a definite need for closer cooperation between Lutheran laity and clergy, a group of laymen in the Washington, DC. Metropolitan area, organized to hold meetings that would bring pastors and laity closer together. Due to jurisdictional differences as well as ministerial difficulties, very little success was achieved until the fall of 1941. Then the group met and decided to hold a luncheon once a month, invite their friends and bring visitors. The first luncheon was a success, and within three months every Lutheran judicatory was represented…” [From a Lutheran Directory of Metropolitan Washington, DC, published in 1999.]

Today, more than 70 years later, the Lutheran Lay Fellowship of Metropolitan Washington takes pride in knowing that every night, 365 nights each year, more than 700 low income seniors and disabled persons live in safety and friendship in four high rises owned and managed by Fellowship Square Foundation, Inc. By means of annual scholarships and grants, LLF also supports various college and seminary students; it also provides ushering services for major inter-Lutheran events. But most of all, LLF is known far and wide as a place to hear stimulating speakers on timely topics and to make friends from other Lutheran congregations—friendships that last for decades!
