KOTA KINABALU — Preacher Ebit Lew, who is on a 10-day humanitarian mission to Sabah, said he has converted some 157 villagers from Pulau Tatagan, Semporna to Islam.

“157 people recited the syahadah today. Praise be to God, I cried with joy. The whole village embraced Islam today. Everyone did it with an open heart, willingly without any force,” he tweeted today.

“I asked them through an interpreter if anyone had explained religion to them. They said, ‘No, we do not know. Please tell us.’ I got emotional and asked them if they know God? What is God?

“They immediately believed. I taught them the syahadah. This is both the saddest and happiest day of my life. I will continue to bring food to this community. I am arranging for a school to be built, and an ustaz to teach them,” he added.

Ebit said  he is sad to hear that the villages  food supply had been cut off and how impoverished the community is.

Ebit is in Sabah for 4 days now since January 28. He travelled to the east coast of Lahad Datu and visited a charity home for those with intellectual and physical disabilities.

It was reported that has brought Islam to the village of Bajau Laut sea gypies in Lahad Datu, while giving aid to poor people in the rural area.

He also donated 100 food baskets, 10 wheelchairs and face masks to St Dominic Catholic Church in Lahad Datu.
