Widow Turned Evangelistby Jonathan Racho “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” Deuteronomy 30:19
Selome is an amazing woman of God whose story grips our hearts, as in the midst of her sorrow, she chose life over spiritual death.
During the Muslim-Christian attacks in Nigeria of 2003, Selome’s husband was tragically murdered. Devastated, Selome was faced with raising their four children as a single mother.
As she grieved the death of her beloved husband, the Spirit of God comforted her, and healed her heart from the hatred she felt towards her husband’s murderers. Instead of choosing hate and revenge (which many would find justifiable), Selome chose to commit herself to the salvation of her husband’s murderers. She is now an active evangelist in the Muslim community, bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to her neighbors.
ICC was able to assist Selome by providing her with funds to start a small business, which allows her to support her growing family.
