How I dropped Islam for Christianity after my encounter with Christ — Fulani herdsman

How my encounter with Christ led me to abandon Islam in favor of Christianity — a Fulani herder


Haruna Sori Shuaibu is an Adamawa State evangelist. He's from the Fulani tribe.

After reading a pamphlet handed to him by a missionary, he became a Christian in 1999.

As a missionary with Burning Bush Ministry, Shuaibu currently preaches largely to Fulani people.

He speaks with Church Times Nigeria about his experience at the 2021 Conference on Practical Evangelism in Offa, Kwara State.

When they saw I was not returning to Islam, they did everything they could to annoy me, including attempting to kill me. "What the Holy Spirit said to me when I dedicated my heart to Jesus" "When I gave my heart to Jesus, the Holy Spirit told me three things. He urged, "First and foremost, read your Bible," "Second, read your Bible," and "Third, read your Bible."
