TRANSFORMATION

‘I was born as the first child of 6 children to Muslim parents and grew up in an Islamic community where both parents played key roles. I had great difficulty continuing in the religion of my father because it had no real meaning to me and I feel I was not doing what my heart told me but I had no choice. Right from basic school, I was being forced by my family to accept and partake in the activities of the Islamic religion, but I gently found ways to avoid that and as a result, I suffered the punishment that came with it.

At school I partook in Christian activities and when I went home I stayed silent on my faith. My family drew back on their responsibility to me as they saw me as the black sheep in the family, but that didn’t put me down. After high school I researched Christian universities in Ghana and learned about Heritage Christian College.

What inspired me to choose HCC is that it is a church of Christ institution and I thought it would be a great medium not only to study Marketing, but also learn to be a true believer in God. My parents weren’t in agreement with my decision so it made it more difficult for them to cater for me, but with God as my provider things are going well with the help of some of the faculty and students. At HCC I took advantage to learn all I could about the steps to salvation.

In 2019 I took a step to be baptized and become a member of the family of Christ. I don’t intend to look back or deny my newfound faith despite my hard circumstances, because I believe ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me’.

My life has been TRANSFORMED!
