Persecution Stories: Leah

leah Leah was a child in the village of Badura, in the Nuba Mountains of central Sudan when radical Islamist forces attacked. During the raid, the Arab Popular Defense Force troops killed, looted and destroyed all they could find. Many people escaped, but because she is blind, Leah did not. In the confusion, Leah was left behind. Brutally raped and beaten, Leah became a mother at the age of ten. In 2004, when PPF saw her once again, Leah was 17 years old. She was accompanied by her 7 year old daughter, the child she bore as a result of the assault by the government forces. Her daughter serves as Leah’s eyes, thus showing once again how God can turn something that was meant for evil into something that is good.
