    #22 - Nasser al’Qahtani – Choosing Jesus Over Family and Country

    #22 - Nasser al’Qahtani – Choosing Jesus Over Family and Country

    Nasser al’Qahtani spent the first twenty years of his life following Islam, but in August of 1996, after two years of prayer from thousands of Christians, the Lord God gave him a vision of Christ crucified that broke his heart and changed his life.

    Ever since that day, he’s been following Jesus all over the world, making disciples by immersing them in the character and nature of the triune God of the Bible through teaching, preaching and, most importantly, modeling this new Spirit-filled life we have been given in Yeshua (Jesus), our Messiah and Savior.
