Soldiers in Sudan often attack villages in the Nuba Mountain region. Churches in the area have been destroyed by bombing. Many Christians have fled to refugee camps away from the fighting.
Muslims in the area have also fled. One of the Muslims is an imam — a Muslim leader. This imam has two wives and 17 children. (Muslims teachings say that Muslim men may have up to four wives.)
The imam is the religious leader for Muslims in his refugee camp. Before he came to the camp, he lost all his possessions when he ran away from his village — his property, animals, and the houses where his large family lived. But he was able to escape with all his children.
People in the refugee camps are very poor. The Voice of the Martyrs brings Action Packs to Christian refugees that are filled with things they need, such as clothes, shoes, blankets, and other items. Christians from churches in the area provided the imam with two Action Packs. He was amazed that Christians would share a gift with a non-Christian.
Christians asked the imam if he had a Bible. When he said he had never read a Bible, they promised to bring him one. The imam said he had been longing for someone to explain what is in the Bible to him. The Christians arranged for him to attend a Bible study group.
The imam is still an imam and a Muslim. But he now has the opportunity to learn about the Bible and about Jesus’ love for him. Pray that the imam and his family will become children of the God who loves them.
