Riaz Mohammed was born into a Muslim family in Pakistan.
While a boy in the village of Gujarat, he witnessed a young boy chasing cattle into a fast-flowing stream. The boy was pulled from the water, but there was nothing that could be done for him—and he died. It was then that the author decided to be a doctor, so he could help people.
Eventually, the author and his family immigrated to Scotland. There, he was treated unkindly, but he was determined to navigate his way through life.
At age sixteen, he saw a vision of Jesus Christ while at camp. He converted to Christianity, which only made his life more complicated, but he studied hard and became a surgeon.
He had started a family of his own and was at the top of his career when he contracted Hepatitis B—and he had to start over again in an entirely new way.
Through it all, God worked in miraculous ways to never let him down.
