Cynthia’s Story

It’s the middle of the week, and the church planted by Imamu is about to begin. The sun is scorching hot, and there’s a flurry of activity outside his house in preparation for the service. A few meters away, in the peace of the shade where the church meets, a young girl sweeps the ground before arranging the seats. 

It’s easy to miss the young girl with everything going on. But, if you attend this church, you will undoubtedly notice her. Arriving before every service, preparing the grounds for the fellowship, she is faithfully there.  

Her name is Cynthia. She is only ten years old, but she has the experience of someone who has spent a long time on earth.  

Cynthia was six years old when she lost her mother and nine years old when a close relative molested her. While she was still trying to come to terms with what had occurred, her father became ill and died. Cynthia and her two brothers were left in the care of their grandmother. Cynthia, who is now ten years old, is responsible for supporting her brothers because her grandmother is frail and unable to work. 

Cynthia, her grandmother, and her brothers were among those who attended a Jesus film screening hosted by Imamu earlier this year. They were captivated by the miracles Jesus performed, and by the end of the film, they had decided to abandon their traditional beliefs and follow Jesus. 

They joined Imamu’s church, where they are ministered to by their fellow believers. Their local church members often donate food, clothes, and resources to Cynthia and her family. This body of believers provided hope for this family as they struggle with poverty and injustice.  

About ten others have accepted Christ after hearing this family’s story and how their growing understanding of Christ’s compassion has caused them to forgive their relative. Cynthia expresses her gratitude to God for giving them eternal hope by preparing the place they gather before each service.
