After Leading the Way's follow-up team distributed one of their solar-powered Navigator audio Bibles to a blind Iraqi refugee, they were astonished to later discover that he used it to memorize 87 chapters from the Bible.
Everyday in his modest home in Amman, Jordan, Fadhil* holds this device in his hand and soaks up the Scriptures.
Several Leading the Way partners found it extremely humbling to visit Fadhil in his home while he quoted Scripture after Scripture:
"It was convicting, because for us we memorize a couple of verses. But he memorized chapters. He just meditates on scriptures day in and day out," said partner David Bottoms.
"When someone from the Leading the Way follow-up team provided him with a Navigator with the Bible and Dr Youssef's messages, he was so overjoyed to receive it and every day he listens to the Word of God."
Partner Ron Hughes added: "Fadhil is someone who would seem unremarkable by the ways of the world. But God doesn't choose to reveal Himself through the mighty and the powerful and the rich. He reveals Himself through the poor and the humble. Being in this small, modest home and being in the presence of greatness as God's word filled the room ... was an amazing experience.
"The vision of Leading the Way through the Navigator is changing hearts, changing minds and glorifying God on the ground in the Middle East in a part of the world that is starving for God's love."
