December 23: Nazma, The Gifts That Changed Her Life

Living in a remote village in Bangladesh with her two young daughters, Nazma was diagnosed with leprosy 16 years ago. Although she was spared the disfigurements that this disease causes, she suffered nerve damage. Leprosy has left her hands numb.

Her only income was the few coins her daughter, just 14, shared from her meager pay at a clothing factory. But all that changed with your caring support.

“Before, I was eating one meal a day,” Nazma said, “But now I’m eating two.” That’s because Nazma received a goat. This goat produces milk to drink and to sell at the local market, and has also given birth to three kids, which can be sold. In addition to the goats, Nazma received some chickens to be used for food and to sell.

A goat, some chickens, and other simple gifts came from supporters like you. These gifts saved Nazma’s life. She was on the verge of starvation, and was so poor that she and her daughters were barely surviving. Today, she’s one step out of extreme poverty.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
