Hungry for God

​As a youth, she was hungry for God—but turned to Islam. She then worked for the U.S. government in anti-terrorism and has photos of herself with Presidents Bush, Obama, Trump and Prince Charles. Eventually, she found Christ. But the twists and turns along the way make for a remarkable story. You’ll hear it in its entirety when you connect with us this week at The Land and the Book. Plus—we’ll bring you the stories behind the headlines from the Middle East on The Land and the Book.
