My name is Hamza, I am a 20-year-old Moroccan man. I live in El Dar Albida. I’m a grad student at a university. Besides, I work in the field of insurance. During my early age, I have been through a very painful yet a harsh situation that was killing me, and almost made me lost my mind. While attending one of the religious lessons, I was raped by one of those religious men. This has been devastating and impacted severely my life. It made me hate all religious men. For me, they turned to be demons in the form of lambs, so I became reluctant of my ex-religion.
One day, I got to know a Christian friend. He began sharing with me the Christian faith, and its priceless perceptions. He talked to me about God’s love, and how his ultimate purpose for humans is to be in an intimate relationship with him. And how we are not just servants to God rather, we are his beloved ones, his valued children, precious in his eyes, and honored. Contrary to the fact the I previously hated anything relates to religion, these words were having my heart opened to the good news and for more of matters of faith.
Coincidently, there has been a TV program running on Miracle channel. While watching, the introducer highlights the need for mature thinking on how to deal with the wounds of the past. How God “the Healer” can heals me, and how to get reconciliation with oneself. Accordingly, I began to look up things in relation with Jesus. I called the Moroccan number appeared on the screen. I was so glad that I’ve got to know a Christan-Moroccan brother in Christ. Since then, we have been having conversations at length for stuff of Jesus and Christian faith. It ended up that I accepted Jesus as my Savoir and the Lord of my life. He healed the wounds of the past and set me free from all extra baggage.
With the help of my new friend in Morocco, I began the journey of discipleship to learn the core Christianity, and how to grow in grace, and wisdom. The Word of God is totally changed my life. Praise the Lord.
