Before Fred Malir became a Christian, he was already engaged – to a Christian. She took him to hear the gospel and his conversion was followed by a call to missionary work. Here was a whole new direction, not one in which his fiancee was prepared to participate. “I don’t want to be the wife of a missionary,” she said, and that was that.
