Mariam is from a big family that has been Muslim for many generations. She attends Grace School and has demonstrated a deep love of scripture reading. All of the students at Grace have their own Bible. She would read hers loudly at home. Everyone in the family liked it except her uncle with whom she is staying. When he found out that Mariam was evangelizing to the family he asked her to burn the Bible. With the support of many in her family Mariam did not burn the scriptures. She is no longer reading it in front of all the family but has continued her reading and told me that she feels peace when she does it.
I have encouraged her to continue reading it but not to disturb others when she reads the Bible. The Quran is often read aloud- in a specific manner, but Bible reading has more to do with the research of God's will for you and His guidance.
Mariam is in grade 8. Please pray for her and her family.
