My Journey with More Than Jewels (MTJ)
I am proud to tell you that I am part of More than Jewels since May 9th 2014, when I met Ms. Amy Kumar in the career counseling class and later on in learning English. I was born in a Hindu family, as a child living in a children’s home I was taught to pray and was encouraged to read the Bible I religiously followed the rules.
Every year thereafter during my summer holidays I began attending the Bible studies taught by Ms Amy and MTJ friends. I developed a desire for God’s word, my questions were answered. I learnt many truths through these studies. I came to know how much God loves me I accepted Christ as my Savior on July 23rd 2017, after studying the life of Leah in the Bible. I was given the name Leah at my baptism. This experience changed my life. I still attend the Bible studies Ms Amy teaches the biblical truths have made me a strong woman. I have been discipled by her, I have an eight year relationship with MTJ. I now teach the Bible.
I gained many social skills as well. I met a lot of new friends and participated in many fun events. I am now given leadership responsibilities in the ministry of MTJ, which I enjoy.
I work as an accountant in an auditor’s office here in my city, I am also pursuing my Chartered Accountancy course of study I hope to complete next year. This has been my childhood dream. I am grateful to God for bringing positive people around me to make this happen.
