That morning, nearly 700 people gathered for the Iftar prayer as the preacher Not Isaac spoke. Isaac is a writer and works on a daily basis with Christian leaders training and social initiatives and runs a company with street shepherds. In his sermon, he highlighted the need for unity and concern for people’s interests.
