St. Ahmed the New Martyr was originally a Muslim who converted to Orthodox Christianity. During the Ottoman empire, he had two pious Russian women as slaves. The younger woman became ill and the older woman brought her blessed bread from the church. He loved the fragrant from the bread and from that bread the woman became well. Inspired by the Orthodox church, he asked to go secretly to church. In awe, he believed,  was baptized and later confessed his faith to the other Turks who killed him
