Rick's music is positive and
uplifting. The songs flow from his
faith and family values. Rick's
musical style has been compared to
James Taylor, John Denver, Leon
Russell, Michael W. Smith, and
Chris Tomlin, to name a few. He is
primarily an acoustic artist, but the
music can get pretty upbeat as well.

The Challenge:
•        A new immigrant comes into
     the US every 33 seconds, on
     the average.
•        The fastest growing religion
      in America is             .

Our credentials:
•        17 years in pastoral ministry
•        6 years as foreign
     missionaries to Albania
•        9 years with AG Intercultural
     Ministries.

Our plan:
•        Reach out to               s in
     our  community
•        Come alongside the
     churches and help in these
     areas
•        Teach some cultural
     awareness and sensitivity
•       Explain             and                 
                  mentality and help
    make people aware of the
    unique challenges it
    presents.

         has been called “Christianity’
s Greatest Challenge”.
Today             is also the greatest
threat to our American way of life.
But, do we, as a church, see them
as “the enemy” or as a people
needing salvation? Too often, it is
the former rather than the latter.
Proverbs 16:9  "In his heart a
man plans his course, but the
LORD determines his steps."

Please allow us to introduce
ourselves.  We are Rick and
Patti Roberts, missionaries to
Albanians.  

We directed a street ministry in
Cincinnati, Ohio for three years
and did much evangelism in the
area.  Then, in 1984 we began
our pastoral ministry and moved
to my home state of South
Carolina. After 17 years of
pastoral ministry and significant
involvement in missions, Patti
and I were called and
commissioned to Albania, a
small Eastern European nation.  

Rick served as pastor the
International Church, one of the
oldest and largest churches in
Albania, with a congregation of
200 Albanians and 25
foreigners. We were involved
with various ministries, including
a medical clinic, an orphanage,
a ministry to the handicapped, a
Bible College, International
Correspondence Institute, and
village outreach.

Today the gospel is going
forward in Albania.  The church
is growing, and God is raising up
workers to advance the gospel
to an even greater extent.  With
less than one percent of the
population professing
evangelical Christianity, there is
much work to be done.  

At the beginning of 2006 we felt
that God was calling us to work
among the many Albanian
immigrants living in the United
States.  There are thousands in
Philadelphia, and we were asked
to work among them.  We also
found a group of Turkish
believers and helped them in
their faith and their outreach
among their countrymen.


In 2016 we relocated to
Lafayette, LA to reach out to
Muslims and other immigrants in
the area
.

Rick & Patti Roberts
Do you realize that we
are at war?

It's not a racial war, or civilians
against cops. It's not a religious
war. It is a war against "...rulers,
against powers, against the world
forces of darkness, against the
spiritual forces of wickedness in
the heavenly places."

Mother Teresa said she was
called to the poorest of the poor.
We have been called to the
lostest of the lost.
People ask, "Why do you reach out to Muslims?"

Because they're lost!
Because Jesus said,"...
preach the gospel to ALL creation." That includes Muslims.

Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all Muslims are lost.

Listen, Islam is not the problem. ISIS is not the problem. Satan is the problem.

  • 1 John 5:12 ... he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life.
  • Acts 4:12  And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given
    among men by which we must be saved.”
  • John 14:6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through
    Me.

Jesus died for me. Jesus died for Muslims.
I didn't deserve salvation any more than they do.

Jesus said to love your neighbor. Muslims used to be in the Middle East. Now they're your neighbors.
Many will say, "Oh no! Don't ask me to love them. They're the enemy."
No! Satan is the enemy! Muslims are his deceived victims.
WE are their only hope.
The church of Jesus is the only thing standing between sinners and he'll.
The church is the only force contesting Satan's rule in this world. And I have to say, we're not doing a good enough
job.

My hope is to inspire you, the church, to stop fearing and hating Muslims, and start praying for their salvation.
"Freely you have received, freely give
."

Muhammed said, "If unbelievers persecute you, slay them whenever and wherever you find them…" 2:191
"4:101 ... Verily, the disbelievers are your open enemies."

But Jesus said, Mat 5:44 — Mat 5:45 "I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that
you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven..."

We fight hatred with love.
We fight darkness with light.
We fight evil with righteousness.
We fight hell and the devil with the gospel!
2 Corinthians 10:4  "the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful for the destruction of
fortresses." (strongholds)

The Quran teaches that Allah doesn't love sinners and Muslims are ordered to kill them?
The Bible teaches that God loves sinners, sacrificed His own Son to save sinners, and tells us to preach this message
of the Father's love to them.
What makes more sense? To serve a god who asks you to sacrifice your son or daughter as a suicide bomber to kill
infidels, or a God who sacrifices His own son to save sinners?

Is Islam a peaceful religion? Absolutely not!
Does the Quran teach violence? Absolutely!
Do they need Jesus? Without question.

But please hear me on this. I know a lot of Muslims. I have Muslim friends. And the ones I know are peaceful, and they
treat me with respect (partly because I treat them with respect.)
But they are deceived by a false religion, and they are just blindly following what they grew up with.
Here are some facts to help you understand the need: (There is much more, and we will cover that in our Islam
Awareness small group this Fall.)
•        Most Muslims have never read the Quran. They only know what their leaders tell them.
•        They say prayers in Arabic that they don't even understand. They believe there is some divine power in just

         
saying the words in Arabic.
•        Allah is not the same as our God. He is nothing like Jehovah.
•        They believe that God is an impersonal judge, not a loving Father.
•        God cannot be known. Only his law can be known. You cannot have Fellowship with Allah.
•        They believe Jesus is just a man, a prophet in a long line of prophets.
•        They believe the Bible is full of errors and cannot be trusted.
•        They believe that American society and Christianity are the same thing. (Our TV shows, movies, billboards, etc

         
represent Christianity.)
•        They believe the gravest sin one can commit is to confess that Jesus is the Son of God.
•        They believe that everything about their lives was written down when they were born – everything that will
happen, whether they will be good or bad, whether they will go to heaven, etc. So they really have no hope, no choice.
Everything can be justified because it was Allah's will.

How can you win people like that? YOU CAN'T! BUT GOD CAN!
These are people with souls, and they face eternity without a savior.
How can we reach them if we hate and fear them?

I'll say it again, they are not the enemy. Satan is the enemy.
Ephesians 6:12 "For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the
world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places."
What Muslims need to see is real Christianity at work.

Shouldn't every soul have a chance to hear the message of salvation?
Muslims are human beings with eternal souls who are hopelessly deceived by a false religion and are bound for hell.
Would you join us in praying for Muslims?
Would you join us in reaching out to Muslims?
Would you join us in loving Muslims into the Kingdom of God?

I believe we are at a pivotal point in history, and YOU can make a difference.
Muslims are pouring into this country at a rate of 200 a day. Many are coming from countries where it is illegal to
preach the Gospel.
We have the privilege to be in a position to offer them the Gospel without fear of arrest or execution. And that door is
closing.
Would you join us in being part the solution?
We need your intercessory prayer that, as we labor, God will give the increase.
We need your partnership.


Every Friday I go to the mosque. Why? 2 reasons.
1. When I am there Jesus is there.
2. I am asking Jesus to miraculously reveal Himself. When He does, I need to be there to help them understand.
Patti and I have accepted an impossible mission.

Matthew 19:25 — 26 When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, “Then who can be saved?”
And looking at them Jesus said to them, “With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Every Friday thousands of Christian are joining together to pray for Muslims to come to Christ?
Will you join us?
