A Testimony From a Prisoner

We would like to share the story of Naji (an alias given for protection), a young man who spent nearly 20 years in prison. Naji grew up with a life of difficulties. Ups and downs seemed to follow him in his young life. A few short months ago, Naji, gave his life to the Lord Christ Jesus and he would forever be changed. He contacted me six months ago through a Christian Prison Minister and he began taking a few courses at the NEC. Naji and I talk once or twice a week over the phone and we meet at least once a month. In our conversations a few days ago I asked him this:

Question: “Why are you taking these courses and how are your studies helping you?"

He replied: “Studying God’s Word is like an anchor for me, it gives stability, self-recognition and meaning to life. Studying God’s Word molds me into a useful person, and helps me to become more patient and helps me to face my present and future in a Godly way. My studies feed me spiritually and give me hope to become a better person spiritually and psychologically. The Word also empowers me to be useful to myself and others. The scriptures help me to redeem my past, from a person who took the lives of others, to a person who gives life to others."

"He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners..." - Isaiah 61:1b

Your faithful partnership helps us reach people like Naji. Would you consider investing in Nazareth Evangelical College so we can continue to equip our community to give life to others?
