Gunar was born to a Muslim family with strong Islamic roots. His father died when he was young and his grandmother became the one who raised him. Through contact with a missionary in her village, he came to know Jesus and went from being a very shy person to one called to go to other villages to feed the poor. He became a Bible college teacher and then was called by God to start a Bible School himself. He is now a mission leader, involved with churches all over his country and is a great encourager who loves to meet and talk to people on the streets or preach and teach in churches or seminars or colleges.
