Benedicte

Benedicte

The following story is from Stef, the children’s publication of SDOK, VOM’s sister mission in the Netherlands.

One day while Benedicte was in her classroom in Nigeria, the school was attacked by Muslim fighters. She ran out of the school, climbed over a fence, and fled into the woods — until she was discovered. Muslim fighters found her and asked, “Are you a Christian?”

At first Benedicte was very scared and didn’t dare to say anything. But then she said very clearly, “Yes, I am a Christian.”

Maybe the fighters were planning to harm or kidnap Benedicte. But then they heard soldiers who were coming to chase them away. The Muslims fled, and Benedicte ran away to a safer area! Praise God for His protection!
