Pema Ongmo, 27, was raised in an animist family and had never heard about Christ until a friend shared the Gospel and invited her to church.
Her father, a village leader, found out and forbade her to read the Bible the pastor had given her. But she started reading the Bible secretly and began to follow Christ.
Her mother became ill, and her father spent all the family’s resources looking for a cure. Pema told her father that the Jesus she read about in the Bible healed many people. Her father agreed to let his wife go to the church, where she was healed.
The whole family eventually placed their trust in Christ. “Thank you for the wonderful Bibles you freely gave us,” Pema said. “I thank you and ask the Lord to bless you richly!”
