Muslim Miss America Converts to Christianity

Some Muslims convert to Christianity such as the first Muslim Miss USA Winner, Rima Fakih. She was crowed in 2010.

Rima converted to Catholicism this year before she married her Maronite Catholic fiancé, Wassim Salibi. The Maronite Catholic Church is one the 23 eastern Catholic Churches which is in full communion with the Pope.

Mrs Fakih is now a practicing Catholic, although she was born in a Muslim family. But, she attended Catholic schools. Nevertheless, she was taking her Islamic faith very seriously in college when she was looking for God.

However, she is not the only one of her family to convert to Christianity. Her brother-in-law is also a Christian and he and his wife baptised their two sons. She also has an uncle who converted to Christianity and became a priest.
