Sudan: A Left-Behind Bible Leads to Churches

Source: God Reports, April 29, 2024

Nuraldaim Hassan was raised as a Muslim in a Muslim area of Sudan, at some distance from any Christian influences.

One day, a man traveling from Gofa stopped at his home along the roadside during a rainstorm. Nuraldaim’s family welcomed the man into their home to rest. After the traveler moved on, Nuraldain noticed the man had left behind a Bible.

Curious, Nuraldain began to read the Bible over the next several days. Later, Nuraldaim’s father saw him reading and asked who gave him “that book.” Nuraldaim told him the traveler left it behind. The father took the Bible and forbade his son to read it again.

However, one of Nuraldaim’s friends happened to be a Christian and told him more about Christ.

Later, Nuraldaim visited a church with his friend. A leader at the church told him that there was an opportunity to go to Bible school. Nuraldaim and some of his friends agreed to attend even though he still had not accepted Christ. It was not until after he was at Bible school that Nuraldaim accepted Jesus as His Savior and was baptized.

Nuraldaim still does not know who left the Bible in his home but knows it was God’s amazing way to reach him. Now, he is a leader in the Blue Nile Community Churches.

The full story includes more context about Sudan.

Sudan’s civil war is now in its second year, and 25 million people, nearly half the population, require humanitarian assistance, according to aid agencies (Catholic Information Service for Africa).
