He decided to make his own way, moving to a Muslim neighborhood. He says he had a dream about Jesus that made him curious. He explains, “I dreamed that Jesus was holding my hand, and telling me that He was the Truth, the Way, and the Life!” Naim began to change the way he thought about Christianity. A few boys his age in his community noticed the change in Naim and beat him very badly. His new interest in Christ would not be deterred, and Naim moved back with his family. He also began attending church with them regularly.
A New Faith and a Prayer
Soon he started going to a Project Philip Bible study for teens. He says, “I will admit that the first session was a bit vague for me, but with the second session, things became clearer. I began to understand the Word of God. I learned to understand it. More than that, I learned to interpret the Scriptures and apply them to my life. This has been very beneficial to me.” Naim is grateful for every person who made it possible for him to attend a Project Philip Bible study. He is now helping others attending the lessons. “Last week, I was the one leading the Bible study group! I did as I was trained to do, to interpret the Scriptures and explain them to others,” he says, beaming.
