Things began to look up for Margarida when a friend invited her to join a Project Philip Bible study. At first, Margarida was afraid because she had never been to church. “My friend kept encouraging me until I joined,” she explains. After just a few days studying God’s Word, she was happy, and her heart was full of peace. During their study, people shared their problems and prayed for one another. She says, “Through Project Philip, I came to realize that I’d been wasting my time by not accepting Jesus Christ.”
Margarida is so grateful for the Project Philip Bible study booklets she received and for the group that made her feel like part of a family. She beams, “During our Bible studies, I learned about the love of God through the parable of the father who loved and received his son, in Luke 15:20. I used to be lost and living on my own, but my Father received me back!
“Thank you for providing me with the tools that helped me come back to God! I will first tell my mom and child to follow Jesus. Then, I'll help others to meet and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.”
