Far from home, he found Jesus.

The wars had been going on all his life, so Mahdi fled Sudan for Egypt. And he brought with him questions, questions about why people would kill one another in the name of God.

“I encourage everyone who doesn’t know truth to seek it out. And this truth will set them free.” – Mahdi

In our newest video, Mahdi and his wife, now living in France, tell their story in their own words. Hear how media outreach made a difference, why Mahdi decided to follow Jesus and how that led to the launch of more than 50 house churches across Egypt.
