This is a story from one of our ministry partners who gave an audio Bible to a widow in Burkina Faso:
The widow’s name is Poko. The Moore translation is female and this name is given to a twin. She is 90. She had 2 daughters who both married and live far away with their husbands and she only sees them every few years. She lives in the courtyard with her husband’s (who died in 1984) brother and his wife. They are all up in age and cannot cultivate so food is scarce. Her health is not good. She has vision and hearing problems and cannot walk without assistance. She gave her life to Christ 2 years ago through our widow program. Each month with her grain she receives prayer and encouragement.
Thank you again for all you have done. God’s Word is being spread because of people like you!
Please be praying for this widow and for all who have received audio Bibles around the world over the years!
