“The Bible changed my life.”
Sharing God’s life-changing Word in Mozambique and around the globe!
Alima* was born in Mozambique, a place where nearly one in two people are trapped in chronic poverty. Her father passed away when she was young, and her mother struggled to care for Alima and her two brothers.
“My mother did everything so that we could have something to eat,” she says. “No one was able to help us.”
To make matters worse, she lived in a poor area in the city of Maputo, near a black market where sellers raise prices to ridiculous levels on much-needed goods and necessities.
Alima recalls one time when she got very ill and her neighbors advised they look for a witch doctor. They lived in a place of spiritual darkness.
Then, Alima made a decision that would change her life forever. She went with her mother to church where she learned about Jesus Christ and got a Bible of her own because of the generosity of friends like you.
“Receiving a Bible is like receiving the Savior in my life,” Alima says. “The Bible changed my life. Whenever I open my Bible, I feel God in the Scriptures and can interact with Him. The Bible is God in my hands and heart. Without the Bible, my life would be terrible. Without a Bible and Jesus, I was just existing with no hope, but Jesus brought me from existence to life. When I got my first Bible, I felt that I had something in my life.”
We are so grateful to our financial partners for everything they do to give Alima and others trapped in poverty and hopelessness the Good News of God’s Word!
