Mr. Michael Birley on behalf of Men's Fellowship invites you to the next MF Lunch (12 July 2019)
Friday, 12 July, 2019 12:45pm - Friday, 12 July, 2019 2:00pm
Please join host Michael Birley and the Men’s Fellowship Luncheon on Friday, 12 July, 2019 at The Hong Kong Club as our special guest speaker, Nate Halid, shares his talk titled, "A Rose That Grew From The Concrete".
Ladies are invited and welcome to join us for this very special luncheon talk!
Originally from Liberia, Africa and raised a Muslim, Nate had only three years of formal education when he was recruited at age 12 into a rebel force as a Child Solider. During the war in 2003, he fled Liberia for safety in neighboring Ivory Coast. There he met a man claiming to be a US citizen who promised to take Nate to the United States. Instead, Nate was trafficked to Hong Kong in 2004. When he refused to work as a drug mule, Nate was abandoned and lived on the streets of Hong Kong at the age of 14, penniless and alone.
A Christian couple found Nate and lead him to Faith before his arrest and imprisonment as a refugee. There his faith was tested and challenged. Released under his own recognizance, Nate began his formal education in Hong Kong and holds a degree in Business Administration from Raffles College Hong Kong; a BS (Hons) at University of Sunderland in March 2013; and a Master's degree in Business Administration. He is now pursuing his PhD in Business. In 2018, he married his wife, Kelly. For 15 years, Nate has lived in Hong Kong as a refugee and his case is heading to the Court of Final Appeals.
Please join us to hear Nate’s amazing story and the work of God in his life!
