A River Versus a Stone

Anna Kozlyuk
August 19, 2019

Merushe didn’t want to go to some Christian church. She’d been a Muslim all her life, and she’d die a Muslim.

There was just one little problem: the church had children services with skits and stories from their Bible, and her darling granddaughter loved it.

What was a poor Muslim grandmother to do?

She’d endure anything for her sweet mbesë, even these Christians.

“In that day Israel will be the third, along with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth. For the Lord of Heaven’s Armies will say, “Blessed be Egypt, my people…”

My name is Samira. I live in a village in Egypt. I am 29 years old, a Christian, a mother of 3 beautiful children. I am a widow.

One woman’s miraculous encounter with God planted a sturdy faith in her that would withstand terrible persecution and loss.

Jahnavi’s neighbors brought her to a church that is World Challenge’s partner because she was demon possessed. Her family had ignored the issue, simply ascribing her strange behavior to a spiritual affliction from one of their thousands of gods.

World Challenge has been dedicated for many years to helping widows, particularly those who are vulnerable to exploitation, cultural stigma or poverty.
