Mary’s Testimoy

 

 

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I am Mary Carlos , and I have believed and received the Lord Jesus Christ from a strict Islamic background (Sunni Wahhabi); I am here to tell you about my testimony of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Since childhood, I grew up with Islamic religiosity and family customs and traditions. I have been raised in mosques since I was little, learning the Koran and religious sciences. But I had an intelligent mind, thinking about things older than my age, and I adored reading books that did not fit my age at that time—history stories, Russian literary novels, and some philosophy that I didn’t understand anything about.  So I grew up on it until I reached high school, and questions began to swirl in my mind about the existence of the gods and the universe, and I could not find answers except that these questions take you out of religion and science.

After graduating from high school, I entered the Islamic Sharia college, but as I dug deeper, more questions were raised , and my confusion increased . I discovered many fallacies in this religion (so many there is no room to mention them now). I graduated from this fanatical religious Islamic Sharia college and worked many jobs.

Looking back, I know that the Lord Jesus Christ was there, telling me that he was, but I didn’t hear him until I discovered many things in the Islamic religion that made me leave that religion and become an atheist then. I stripped my mind of all the consequences of that religion, but deep down; I knew there was a God.  But where is he? How is he? And why can’t you hear, see, or feel his voice?

Not finding answers to these questions led me to despair.  But unfortunately, it also led me to three suicide attempts.

I was still baffled because, before this day and the divine appearance, I had asked, ”where are you, God?” ”Why can’t I see or hear you?” While  driving my car toward work, I screamed out for God.  While I was in my desperate state, crying and screaming, a traffic cop paid attention to me and tried to calm me down and then gave me water, after which I found myself in front of the church in Kuwait.  I was shocked, and then I moved the car to get back to work, but I also returned to the church.

Honestly, this happened three times, the last of which I decided  to see what this God wanted, and I entered the church. I didn’t know anything except to follow the people there; they were from India; I entered the room with them and found comfort miraculously, I saw the cross and the image of the Lord, but I didn’t know it was him then, I fell asleep from the intensity of the experience.

For more than two years previously, I didn’t sleep well except with the help of hypnotic and sedative drugs. Then, finally, I woke up in that church, I didn’t have any explanation at the time, but the divine apparition after that encounter in the hospital explained it, especially after I shared everything that happened to me with an electronic friend whose voice I had never heard and had never seen a picture of him, only biblical conversations about human rights and the like.

He told me that the one who appeared to me was Jesus Christ, and the church was the House of the Lord. From here, I started my journey to the Lord Jesus Christ. Although I understood very little, I knew nothing about the Lord Jesus Christ from my background; the Lord was feeling every word of the Bible for me.

I was attending a church of foreigners who were not Arabs. Unfortunately, the Arab churches fear the government and its sanctions, as it is forbidden to proselytize or baptize a Kuwaiti.  So, a year later, in 2018, the Holy Spirit ignited inside me! I couldn’t wait anymore; I wanted to learn the word of the Lord!  YouTube is no longer enough for me, nor the mass of foreigners, and here my Lord sent me a person named Fawzi who guided me to other passers-by. I started the journey of Bible study disguised in multiple cafes and without the adoption of an Arab church.

Because the laws of the state would not let me worship the Lord Jesus Christ, in 2019, I emigrated to Britain.  I was baptized a year later, on 15 March 2020, in an Arab Church in London, and since that time, I have been inflamed by the Holy Spirit.

What I am telling you is only a brief part of my testimony. Otherwise, it would be very lengthy. Perhaps I will complete  for you the excellent series of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ later, but I trust that the Lord Jesus Christ is alive and eternal, and his work in us is lovely, and the good news of him is due to the love and peace he has given us.

Pray for me often and always remind me and communicate with me whenever you want, but please do not trust the husks of Islam to which they invite you because it is not from the Lord God but the religion of Satan.

Working for Mecca to Christ as a staff has encouraged my faith greatly as I share my testimony with Muslims and see them coming to Jesus, considering being a financial ministry partner through mecca to Christ.

The Lord is my shepherd, so I don’t lack anything; the Lord is love, and the love of the Lord is with all of you.

Mary
