“I not only learned the lessons from the literacy class but also I got a prayerful life through this,” says Maya Mondal, a member of Shehalabonia Fellowship Church, Mongla, Bagerhat.
She began attending the class after being encouraged by Jhorna Sarder, the facilitator. She says, “I did not have any opportunities during my childhood to continue my studies but after a long time I received an opportunity. I can read the Bible now.
“I had a tumour in my stomach during the course. Everybody in the group prayed for my recovery. I also prayed every day at home. I learnt from the course that whoever trusts and depends on God will be healed. The Lord saw my tears and answered my prayer and healed me. I went to my doctor and it was completely healed. This healing helped me to depend on God for everything.”
