From Rebel to Believer

In a far corner of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Omari's story begins, but it's not the start you'd want for anyone. Imagine being just 15 and caught up in one of the scariest rebel groups around. That was Omari's life for more than 10 years, leading him down a path that seemed to have no return. Eventually, this path landed him in prison, a place where hope felt like a foreign concept. But something amazing was about to happen, something that would change Omari's life forever.

Enter Hope Channel International, working in conjunction with the East-Central Africa Division and Adventist World Radio. They had a big idea: "Hope for Africa," a two-week event meant to shine a light in the darkest places. Part of their plan was to visit local prisons, and that's where Omari's story takes a turn for the better.

Two pastors, part of the campaign, walked into Omari's prison. They weren't just there to talk; they were there to listen and to share something powerful – the Word of God. It wasn't just their words that touched Omari, but the caring and genuine way they reached out. They offered him a chance to listen, to really hear messages of hope and forgiveness. And guess what? Omari listened. He felt something he hadn't in years, maybe ever – hope.

Making a huge leap of faith, Omari decided to leave his rebel group. He chose to be baptized as a Seventh-day Adventist Christian, turning a new page in his life. Omari’s story is but one among the 194,000 people who were touched by the "Hope for Africa" campaign. Each of these individuals represents a life called out of darkness, and the relentless efforts of those willing to serve as beacons of God’s love.
