Jumping Through Fires
He grew up culturally Muslim. His father was a general in the Iranian army. Pastor David Nasser tells how his family escaped execution and fled Iran during the Iranian Revolution of 1979. For nine months his family tried legally to get into the United States. It was only after his mother encouraged him to pray and ask this “American Jesus,” whom he’d only heard of, to let them into the country, that asylum was granted. David also recalls his family’s early years in the United States. Eager to fit in at his new school in Texas, David tells what lengths he went to find acceptance among his peers. In his quest, however, David found more than he bargained for. He found salvation and purpose through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
