Kamal Saleem was born to a large Sunni Muslim family in the heart of the Middle East. Kamal was recruited by the Muslim Brotherhood at an early age and completed his first mission to Israel at the age of seven. He continued to work on behalf of Islamic Jihad all over the world until while in America, his world was turned upside down; in 1985 Kamal was seriously injured in an automobile accident. Christian men aided Kamal at the accident scene, and continued to physically and emotionally nurture him back to health. The love and sacrificial giving of these men demonstrated to Kamal the unconditional, redemptive love of Christ and he cried out to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob acknowledging his need for the Savior. Kamal has since become a man on a new mission, as an Ambassador for Christ, the one true and living God.
