I am a Jesus' disciple who is from the Middle East, the center of conflicts in the world. Like other Middle Eastern children, looking for peace has been in my DNA since I was born. I decided to be his disciple because Jesus, as a Middle Eastern fellow, started a movement that makes peace in humans' heart and in the world. Peace on earth is not a fantasy in Christianity. It's God's will. Jesus teaches us permanent peace and joy come to our hearts and to our world when we are in the center of God’s will. I am a Jesus' disciple, looking for God's  will, peace, and joy on earth as it is in heaven.
