      Born and raised in Cairo, Egypt. Had a personal encounter with Jesus at age 15, where God called me to leave everything behind and follow Him. Few weeks later I was on a plane crossing the pond to the other side of the world. Bolivia, South America! In Bolivia and at age 16, I started serving Jesus, preaching the Gospel everywhere. Studied and graduated from The Assemblies of God Theological Seminary, where I met my beautiful wife Margot. After graduation we got married, and together have been planting & pastoring churches in Bolivia and the United States. In 2012, we launched a church in the great city of Miami!
