Financial conference in June
There will be a financial empowerment conference, "Exodus 2006," presented by Dr. Nasir K. Siddiki. In the 1980s, Dr. Siddiki was a successful Muslim businessman by secular world standards. He raised millions of dollars in revenue for companies worldwide. As a seminar speaker, he attracted crowds of up to 10,000, who came to listen and learn about his keys to success. Having achieved his dream of financial success, he drove expensive cars and lived in luxurious homes. For years he accomplished great feats and set performance records in marketing and sales. Then one day, he was diagnosed with shingles – a deadly virus that attacked his nervous system. It was a life threatening situation for which there was no cure at the time. The doctors gave Nasir no hope, so in desperation he cried out to God and his life changed forever. The conference will take place at Christ Evangelistic Church in Laurel on June 11 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on June 12 and 13 at 7 p.m. Phone 875-2915 for more information.
