Fiddes's Story

Fiddes Lungu moved to Nkhata-bay in pursuit of a better life. But in 2022, tragedy struck as a fierce storm destroyed her home, and took the life of her son.

Overwhelmed by grief, Fiddes considered suicide, feeling the weight of losing everything. Following a number of failed suicide attempts, her marriage began to unravel.

Hope arrived through the Family Scripture Engagement Packs by the Bible Society of Malawi. Selected as a beneficiary, Fiddes received a Bible and a Bible study guide. Initially hesitant, she embraced the materials, and her life took a transformative turn.

Immersing herself in the Scriptures, Fiddes found solace in 1 Peter 5:7: ‘Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.’ Trusting in the Lord, her suicidal thoughts waned, replaced by newfound inner peace.

‘I no longer cry as I used to,’ Fiddes shared, her eyes reflecting resilience. ‘My family has been brought together because of this Bible. If not for the Bible, I would have committed suicide by now.’

‘The Bible saved my life’

Fiddes’ testimony illustrates the transformative power of the Bible. It also shows the critical role your financial support makes in providing hope and healing to those desperate to read God’s Word in their heart language.
