|J* grew up in a Roman Catholic family. She never read the Bible as a child and didn’t know how to pray well. She recently joined an “Anannya” class (women’s weekly Bible study group). Since joining and participating, Jenny has been reading the Bible and praying regularly. Her whole family now prays and reads the Bible in the evening, and she preaches at the Women’s Fellowship. J* is very thankful for God in her life and how he has changed her life.
L* grew up in a Christian family and thought she knew who Jesus was, she did not know much about him. Her daughter-in-law invited her to attend the “Anannya” class (women’s weekly Bible study group). L* was skeptical and thought she would know more about Jesus than her daughter-in-law since her daughter-in-law grew up as a Muslim. On the first day of the class, her daughter-in-law gave her books, notebooks, pens, Bibles, and a songbook; everything she needed. L* said, “Daughter-in-law, I don’t know how to read or write.” Then her daughter-in-law said, “You can do it all.” L* kept attending classes and slowly the lessons began to work in her heart. Even though L* is unable to read, she listens to all the class discussions and makes it a priority to come to class.
A* grew up in a Hindu family, following all the rituals of Hinduism. She came to know the Lord six months before she was married. The family she married into is Christian. A* did not know how to read or write but she would pray. She began to attend the “Anannya” class (women’s weekly Bible study group) and has been praying regularly and trying to memorize Bible verses. When one of her daughters was sick, she prayed for God to heal her, and he did. She is confident in the Lord and how he listens to her prayers.
