Abbas Hameed was born in Samarra, Iraq and lived in the country for 23 years. During the Operation Iraqi Freedom, the United States military was looking for Iraqi’s who were bilingual in Arabic and English. Abbas was bilingual and had an interest in assisting the military, so he signed up to be an interpreter.
At the beginning of 2005, Abbas was hit by a car bomb while on duty. He was the only survivor. This made him start to seek for Jesus Christ and answers.
Abbas searched for two years for someone to teach him how to read the Bible. Finally, he found a friend in the military who explained how to read the Bible to him. Abbas started to read the Bible every day. Within a year, Abbas accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.
Currently, Abbas lives in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania with his wife, Michelle and their two children, Asher and Grace.
