Tadala’s story

Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, with a staggering 46% of the population under the age of 15. Few children have toys or books of their own, and even fewer own a copy of the Bible.

For the last five years, our team in Malawi has been providing thousands of Bibles to girls and boys in Sunday schools across the country.  These Bibles are helping transform the lives of children, but there is still an urgent need for more Bibles.

One of the young girls who received a children’s Bible from our team is ten-year-old Tadala. Like many other families in Malawi, Tadala’s parents could never afford to give her a Bible.

Before she received her own copy, Tadala explained ‘We did not have enough Bibles before we were given these ones. We had to form groups and share, and the teachers would just read the stories to us.’

Now, Tadala cherishes her children’s Bible. She told us her favourite story is the Christmas story.

‘My favourite story is the birth of Jesus Christ,’ she said. ‘I like that because you get to know how Jesus came to the earth and how he was born.’

Please will you consider children around the world who won’t be celebrating Christmas quite like us this year?

Whether young refugees in the Middle East, street kids in South America, or those in crushing poverty in Africa, there is hope for each of them. In the Bible, young people discover they are loved and have a purpose.

Will you help share the Good News with more children like Tadala this Christmas?
