At the local shop owned by Negash, someone left a Bible behind as collateral for payment. At first, Negash was frustrated because the Bible had no value to him. He even tore out some of the pages to see if he could use them as packaging for sugar, but the paper was too thin.
Not long after the Bible appeared, Negash began to have strange dreams of a man in white. In the dream, the man said, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.” The dreams were both troubling and wonderful. “I was afraid, and at the same time, I wanted to see him again,” Negash says.
Later, Negash opened the Bible and found the matching passage in John 14. At this moment, Negash gave his life to Jesus and left Islam.
He didn’t know it at the time, but the road ahead would be full of persecution and pain, but it also had beautiful intimacy with Jesus and miraculous answers to prayer.
