Syed Waqas

Syed Waqas of Punjab, Pakistan, is presently a graduate student at Cincinnati Christian University.  A descendent of Muhammad, he was a sincere Muslim until beginning to investigate the teachings of Jesus over the internet.  After a year of study without face-to-face contact with any missionary, he became a Christian.  At great personal risk, he has assembled a group of 50 men of similar inquisitive nature, many of whom have been baptized.  His faith has caused him to be cut off from his family and community.  Because of the imminent danger in which his faith placed him, leaving his home country for a time became necessary.  He has written and produced four 20-page tracts and two books in his native language.  In addition, the Christians with him have conducted several humanitarian efforts, teaching about Jesus at every opportunity.  He plans to develop his existing charitable and educational foundation to promote multicultural communication.  He is required to leave the US after his graduate studies.  Depending on the political circumstances at that time, he will move to an Islamic country which tolerates Christians.
