The Golden Thread of God’s Love
From South Africa to the UK and beyond,
A narrative of an ‘ordinary’ man with an extraordinary God
BORN IN OBSCURITY to a single Hindu woman in Cape Town, South Africa, in 1958 during the apartheid era, Omar was a charming, humorous individual. This poignant biography describes how he was relocated to the UK and through many challenges developed resilience and strength of character.
It tells how he experienced God’s presence from a young age and became a Christian as a teenager and how, from that, all else followed.
Omar’s unswerving faith in Jesus led him to believe with Him no problem is insurmountable. In later life, Omar returned to South Africa to retrace his roots and discover the truth about his origins – discoveries which caused him to re-evaluate his life and thank God again for his faithfulness throughout.
