POBLO Missionary Karim met her through a family that he was visiting in the area. The family knows that Karim is a Christian who takes care of people in need, so they told Omdany that he would help her. She came to Karim with tears in her eyes and asked him for help.
Karim prayed for her situation and assured her that God would provide for her needs. After that, Karim talked to other believers from the church he attends and told them of her difficult situation. Members from the church have started helping her in every way they can, including financially. This put a smile on her face, because they were able to help improve her situation and encourage her, and she is able to provide for her children.
Omdany recenly told Karim that she would like to come to his weekly Bible study. However, it is far from where she lives, and she does not have a car. Karim and POBLO Missionary Salma are in the process of finding a way to get her to the Bible study. In the meantime, they go to her house every week to pray with her and teach her the Bible.
The Bible tells us to care for the widows and orphans, and that is exactly what Karim and Salma are doing. They encourage Omdany to hold onto Jesus Christ and trust that He will take care of her needs and help her. He is doing that through them. What a privilege to be a part of His work!
Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress... (James 1:27).
He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing (Deuteronomy 10:18).
