About the Author:

BILQUIS SHEIKH came from a family in Pakistan that held government power for seven hundred years. She was also the wife of a high-ranking government official in Pakistan. She gave her life to Jesus Christ in 1966. In 1972, sponsored by Samaritan's Purse, she resettled in the United States, where she spoke widely and shared her faith with many. Years later she returned to Pakistan, where she died in 1997. She was given a Christian funeral.
