Samya Johnson was born into a Christian family in Beirut, Lebanon. At the age of six, in Sunday school, she gave her life to Jesus. Samya spent her school and college years in Lebanon during the civil war. God saved her from actual death three times during the war. While in college, God dealt with her brokenness and amazingly she was able to forgive and love the Muslims, who were considered intolerable enemies in her community. Healing took place when the Lord led her to work in a Christian radio ministry. Samya started corresponding with Muslim listeners, answering their questions about Christianity and getting to know them personally. Through this ministry, Samya led many Muslims from all over the Arabic world to the Good News of the Gospel. She also helped them in their new journey as followers of Christ. While the last civil battle in Lebanon was going on, Samya moved to Cyprus to continue the Lord’s work. God expanded her ministry to include writing and presenting hundreds of Christian Arabic radio programs. Samya met her husband in Cyprus. They married in 1992 in Egypt where they lived and served together for seven years. In Egypt, Samya continued to write and present radio programs. She also translated into Arabic several English Christian books. Today Samya is heavily involved in training and educating the western church about Islam and how to reach Muslims.
