Eva, a 17-year-old in Tanzania, was sent to prison for two years. Muslims accused her of damaging a Quran. The Quran is the Muslim holy book.
Read a previous post about Eva here.
Eva is now 18. VOM readers sent more than 1,000 letter of encouragement to Eva while she was in prison.
A VOM worker visited Eve in prison and provided her with legal help. The court ruled that Eva was “not guilty” in January 2013!
After she left prison, Eva needed a safe place to stay. A VOM worker helped her move to a home with other Christian women who can help and encourage her. The worker also helped her find a job.
Eva was blessed by the letters she received from Christians, and she re-reads them during her stay at the safe house. “I did not know God loved me to that extent,” she said. “I am terribly amazed and am highly motivated and encouraged.”
