Houston's First welcomes back Nabeel Qureshi as our guest speaker with a heartfelt and hope-filled message about the challenges ahead for him. Nabeel spoke at The Loop Campus on Sun, Oct 2, and his message will be shown on video at our Cypress, Downtown, Español and Sienna campuses on Sun, Oct 9.
Nabeel announced in late August that he had been diagnosed with stomach cancer. (Read his announcement here.) He has recently moved to Houston and is undergoing treatment at MD Anderson Cancer Center, beginning chemotherapy on Sep 22. Nabeel has cancelled most of his other speaking engagements, but he continued with his plans to be with us in person on Oct 2 — a date that was scheduled months before his diagnosis.
Pray for Nabeel as his treatment gets underway, and for God to continue to boldly use his story and his faith to draw others to Him.
Raised as a devout Muslim in the United States, Nabeel grew up studying Islamic apologetics with his family and engaging Christians in religious discussions. After one such discussion with a Christian, the two became friends and began a years-long debate on the historical claims of Christianity and Islam. Nabeel chronicled his resulting journey in his first book, Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus.
