Norah is from a so-called “closed country” in the Arabian Gulf. With problems at home, she had a deep need for love. She found no love in the region’s dominant religion.
After attempting suicide, Norah searched online, trying to discover who God is and if Christianity could bring her love. She found an evangelistic website on Google and chatted with a mentor named Miriam. Norah asked if God loved her and would accept her with all of her problems.
Norah and Miriam began to discuss Norah’s questions every day on WhatsApp. After three months, Norah made a clear profession of faith. She told Miriam, “I love Jesus so much!”
Miriam encouraged Norah to watch the JESUS film
. Afterward, Norah had many questions, allowing Miriam to connect with her on a deeper level. But she was surprised when Norah said, “I want to read the Bible.”
Miriam encouraged Norah to read the Bible on a website. Norah started by reading the book of John. A few weeks later, she wanted a Bible she could hold. Miriam told her this would be too dangerous. They put Norah’s hope for a Bible in God’s hands.
