Mohd. Saleem was born into a wealthy Muslim family in Pakistan, grew up in Saudi Arabia and lives abroad now. He asked many questions on the meaning of life: Why am I here? Where did I come from? Is there really a God and if so where is He? Why doesn't He talk? One day while surfing at an internet cafe in a Middle Eastern country, he searched for Jesus. "Who Is Jesus?" and got lots of web sites. He was amazed that he could search about Jesus Christ on the internet! He kept coming to this web site often and so began his spiritual journey of faith in Jesus Christ. Jeremiah 29:11 declares "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."God has been faithful to Mohd Saleem.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
