My life story – soon to be in print
I WAS RECENTLY APPROACHED by the manager of the publishing company, Baker Books. He asked me if I would write down my life story. At first I was hesitant as I had never taken on such a personal project before. Then a writer who specialises in helping people whose first language is not English offered to help me. I would dictate my story and he would write it down.
The book is called Finding Jesus after Jihad. It’s not only the story of my life but it also includes truths and principles the Lord taught me as a young teenager who was coming to terms with his young Christian faith after seeing his father shot to death by fanatics. I share about the hatred and revenge that at first consumed my heart and then about how the Lord met with me and gave me a heart of love and forgiveness.
It is my prayer that when the book is published, it will be a great blessing and encouragement to all who read it.
