I was born into a Christian family in Syria, but I had my personal encounter with Jesus when I was 28 years old. My wife, Naheda, was also born in Syria into a Christian family. We were married in 1993 and both of us had the vision to serve among the lost, especially Muslims. After having two children, Angel and Tony, we had a calling from God to leave for Lebanon and serve him there. We lived in Lebanon for 15 years till February 2016. While in Lebanon, I studied in Arab Baptist Theological Seminary and graduated with Bachelors of Theology degree. In 2006 we became part of the worldwide Navigators family and focused on Bible studies and evangelism. When war broke out in Syria and Canada opened her doors, we took the opportunity to come to Canada. While we settled in Canada, God's call remains the same as we serve him here among the lost in the city of Edmonton.
