Encouraging Story: Children in the Bookshop

Alfred KaiKai is the manager of the Circular Road bookshop and relates this story:

“One day some primary school children came in to the bookshop. They had just taken an examination in preparation for moving on to secondary or high school. They came to buy tracts as they were something they could afford. One of the tracts was titled ‘Unloved’. A girl asked, “Does God love everyone in the world?” I said, “Yes, and God loves you as well.” She then explained that she felt her parents didn’t love her as they were always shouting at her and beating her for no reason. She was about 10 years old and was crying as she was saying this. I prayed with her and, when she returned to the shop the following Saturday, I had the opportunity of leading her to Christ. She passed her exams and is now at a school with boarding facilities. We pray that her relationship with Christ will continue to grow as she progresses in life.”
