Amidah looked at the ground as she slipped into the cinder-block classroom at the small Christian school in her neighborhood in Tanzania. It was time for the Bible lesson, and Amidah didn’t want to miss it. She quickly pulled the hijab from her head and sat down in the back, hoping no one had noticed her arrival.
The teacher did see Amidah come in, but she pretended not to notice. She didn’t want to do anything that might cause Amidah to leave. Amidah’s family is Muslim, but Amidah has been sneaking away from home to attend Bible class a few times a week. She enjoys the games and activities the teacher shares from the Life on Life discipleship program but her heart has been captured by the stories about Jesus.
Recently, the teacher shared the gospel with Amidah, and now Amidah is part of God’s family. She hopes to one day share her faith with her parents and tell them how His love has changed her life for eternity!
