From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?”
But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” — John 6:66–69.
Netta and her family were Christians in a Muslim country. It can be difficult to be a Christian in a place where Muslims often get better jobs and are treated well. Sometimes people who were raised in Christian families are tempted to leave their family’s faith and become Muslims.
Netta loved Jesus and loved going to church. But when she was 9 years old, the rest of her family became Muslims. Netta would not join them. Her father even offered her money if she would agree to be a Muslim. Netta did not take the money.
By the time she was 12, Netta’s father had kicked her out of the house. She babysat for other families in return for a place to stay.
Netta is now married. She has never had children and is praying for a child. She witnesses to Muslim women and tells them about the goodness of Jesus. Christians around the world are praying that she will be a good witness and that Muslim women will come to love Jesus like Netta does.
