Elijah Abraham, is the founder and executive director of Living Oasis Ministries. Elijah's story began in Baghdad in 1965 when he was born to an Iraqi Shi'ite Muslim family. At the age of 15, his father sent him to the Europe because of the incredible suffering the Iraq-Iran war brought on the country, and to spare him the compulsory military duty and an almost certain untimely death in battle.
