Miriam was ready to set herself on fire, until…
“Receiving and reading the Bible has been a pillar in my life.”
Miriam’s family fled to a refugee camp in Jordan to escape the violence in her country, but her troubles came with her. Miriam’s husband drank heavily and abused her. She felt her world was falling apart. At one point things got so bad that she poured kerosene over herself and got ready to set herself on fire. She is only alive because one of her sons begged her to stop.
“When I took part in the trauma healing, I felt that I could breathe again,” Miriam says. “I needed someone to listen to me. I needed to tell someone what had happened to me.”
“All the love I get from Jesus I give to my children,” she smiles. “The Bible has been life-changing for me.”
