The following story comes from Stef, the children’s publication of SDOK, The Voice of the Martyrs’ sister mission in the Netherlands. SDOK workers visited David in Nigeria and listened to his story.

David’s Story
Hi. I’m David, and I live in Nigeria, a large country in Africa. At home I haul water from the water well. Every day my mom needs several buckets of water to cook, clean, and wash clothes.

There is a lid on the well because I can’t imagine that my little sister, Gladys, would fall into it. Getting water is boring work. But thankfully my dad does it once in a while also.

Not long ago we moved to a different house. I liked our first home a lot better. But we were living in a dangerous area.

I had a friend there named Joseph. I miss him every day. I would like to go just hang out with him and talk, but that’s not likely. “Much too dangerous,” my parents tell me. And of course I know that’s true.

Maybe I should share a little bit more about the danger. I don’t like to talk about it, because I always get a bad feeling when I do. But I really think you should know about this.

Read in the next post about what happened to David’s family in their old home.
