Convert from Islam

Real Testimony

Hussein Wario

I am a former Kenyan Sunni Muslim who was educated in madrassa (Islamic religious school) during my formative years. Upon graduation from madrassa, I became a madrassa teaching assistant and a muadhin (a person who calls Muslims to pray) in my native hometown. I converted to Christianity in August 1989 when I was 14 years old. My people group, the Orma, is one of the “un-reached people groups” in the world because more than 99.98 percent[1] is Muslim. I was only the second Orma to convert to Christianity. 

My family found out about my conversion through my Muslim schoolmates at a boarding school six months later. Subsequent persecution resulted in the Kenyan government representative in my home area giving a directive that led to my separation from my family in May 1990. I stayed in different parts of the country with various Christian families from different people groups and nationalities for about six years until I came to the United States in August 1996. 

My faith journey is featured in my recently published autobiography, Cracks in the Crescent. I discuss in my book some obscure aspects of Islam by conspicuously illustrating them throughout my upbringing as a Muslim, my conversion to Christianity and the ensuing persecution. I utilize the Qur’an and Prophet Muhammad’s sayings, the Hadith, to make my case. 

Portions of my conversion story and the subsequent persecution have been featured in a 1998 book, The Call of Africa: The Reformed Church in America Mission in the Sub-Sahara, 1948—1998; the Grand Rapids Press in October 1996; a nationwide radio broadcast through Radio Bible Class (RBC) Ministries’ weekend program Words to Live By in the United States and in some select countries in October 2003; and a reformed semi-monthly magazine the Standard Bearer in September 2006. I have shared my story with churches, schools, colleges, and groups in Kenya and the United States. 

I live to give glory to the Lord for saving me. I am grateful, among many things, for His protection from my detractors. I believe that the Lord has called me to be an encouragement to His church and to be an instrument in mitigating difficulties it faces in understanding Islam and reaching out to Muslims. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to CARM's outreach and evangelism efforts. Thank you. Excerpts from my book are available online at http://www.cracksinthecrescent.com/ 

In Christ,
Hussein Wario

Dear Hussein   thank you for your rare testimony.   if you wish i can introduce it in my site, but i do not wish to attract trouble to you.

Thank you for writing! Please go ahead and introduce my testimony to your website site. I am not worried about getting in trouble with Muslims because I have been dealing with them for the past nineteen and a half years. Thank you once again. In Christ, Hussein
