The second person is Liz Anjorin

This actress revealed that she switched to Islam because pastors refused to help with burial site of her mother. In her words, I could remember right from when I was a teenager my mother used to tell me that she does not want her dead body to be taken to the mortuary when she dies. Lizzy revealed that her mother was born into a Muslim family but then slept in the church several times during their struggles so they automatically became Christians. And she revealed that not less than 10 Pastors refused to perform the funnel rite because her mother was not a member of their church. The actress said she was extorted by the Coffin sellers before her mother was eventually buried by 5am the next day she passed on. In her words it was an Alfa that did a prayer for my mom.

My thoughts was how can we treat ourselves in such a cruel way. Then he now said if Mama was a Muslim they would have buried her before I arrived. It was that day I realised that if you have money with no good saving or lands you are joker, where you are buried is where you will rest forever. The so called Muslim were all over me and they stood by me. The 8 days prayers was done by Muslims while one of the Alfa called me and said to me I heard you are the only child of Mama make sure you go to Haj talk to God and pray for your mother. So that was how Liz Anjorin became a Muslim.

When you don't know the deep meaning of something you will think it's a child's play and do what ever you like, those that know the truth walk by the truth and nothing will shake them. It's not about the religion but your intimate relationship with God.
