He Went Into a Coma as a Muslim. When He Came Out Of It, Jesus Was There.

Culture
Syrian-born Karim Shamsi-Basha was once a Muslim. In 1992, he had sudden brain aneurysm that left him in a month-long coma. He woke up and miraculously recovered. His doctor told Karim he had "seen very few people recover as you did. You have to find out why you survived." After realizing what miracle he experienced, Karim began a 20 year, soul searching journey that led him to one thing: Jesus Christ. After his recovery, he began reading the Bible.

He knows God was responsible for his miracle survival and recovery. His family are still devout Muslims, but he remains c...

Instead, drain out the leftover wax and use it as storage. This is called "upcycling." Upcycling is "the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value." And it's not just for people who love arts and crafts. These ideas are worth trying (and will make your home a whole lot cooler). 1.) Using an old ladder as a bookshelf.

The old hotel used to be glorious, now it is just an eerily silent building. ...
