Hello, a little about me!




12-20-2016 Hello, a little about me! Born and raised in a strictly Islamic religious family not very well educated due family control over me, I'm an Albanian. I was raised in a society where hate is not considered a crime, in school they use to teach us how to hate other religions (Christian, Jewish) and favor Islam. In the age of 10 until 18 yr old was residing in Iraq where my grandfather is, joined and supported terrorists and terrorist organizations (ISIS or Islamic State of Iraq and Sham). That's why I'm here in U.S., I got extradited from Malaysia (A very beautiful country with terrorist people unfortunately). Before here, now in prison, I was in jail, the first day was a bless, in the cell found a Bible and a Quran, I start reading Bible cos the Quran I already know, raised with it. I memorize many of the Quran, peoples use to call me Amir (Amir stand for as a leader and have knowledge on teaching Islam on others). While reading the bible was very kind and my eyes went at "I tell you, now it's the time, God's favor, now is the day of salvation" (II Corinthians 6:2) I started to think and in same time I was confused and anxious what God was trying to tell me, I close the Holy Bible and again open it, it was at "Romans" "God commandeth His love toward us, in that while, we were yet sinners Christ died for us" (Roman's 5:8) Felt confused and wrong, was like someone trying to communicate with me, anxious and fearful slept that day. I saw a dream, was Jesus Christ, I waked up, open the Bible suddenly saw: "Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners" (1 Timothy 1:15) I was very confused, more I read the God word's in Bible make's me more addicted and more believer in truth - -"Behold, now is the accepted time; Behold, now is the day of salvation" (II Corinthians 6:2) "Chose You This Day Whom Ye Shall Serve" (Joshua 24:15) "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved, and thy house" (Acts 16:34). As of today been about 1 year and 6 months that I'm a devoted christian young man, I'm now 22 yr old. I was bad in past, in evil believe, was expert advice and personnel for ISIS (Islamic State). I changed my life with help of Lord, spending my time reading Holy Bible makes my time here in prison pass very fast. I have 20 year sentence and very high profile case. "Jesus said if ye love me you would rejoice because I said, I go unto the Father" (John 14:28) A christian brother suggested me to contact your organization and I hope and pray that you will not deny me. "The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and [plenteous?] in mercy" (Psalm 103:8) Mail info: Ardit
