Mary, another Nigerian Christian who uses a prosthetic leg
Evelyn, age 16, was kidnapped by Muslim terrorists in Nigeria. She was prepared to die for her faith in Christ. “I told God that He is the one that brought me to this world, and if He decides to let me go at that time, I have nothing to say. I am ready to die at the time God has set for me.”
Thankfully, Evelyn survived and escaped from the terrorists. But a bomb injured her leg during a terrorist battle. Now she has to use a prosthetic leg. (Prosthesis are artificial, man-made body parts.) A VOM clinic in Nigeria made the new leg for her.
A VOM worker from the U.S. visited Evelyn in Nigeria. She told the worker, “I thank God and believe He kept me [alive] because He has a purpose for my life. I am ready and willing to work for God.
“As a student, I will need prayers for my academics so that I will excel more and in my life as I grow. I want to live a life of a blameless Christian. I want Christians to also pray for my parents who have been so loving and caring. God gave them the hearts to continue to love me. My parents did not desert me, and they look at me as their princess.”
