As a speaker he has been traveling into many countries in Europe as well as to China, Ghana, Botswana, Malaysia, Mexico and the USA. He is happily married to his best friend Rabea. He currently studies History and Old Oriental Philology at the University of Tubingen as an addition to his evangelistic work.
