There are 250 million women in Asia who are illiterate.
Could you imagine looking at words and not being able to read? Could you imagine not being able to read the Bible? Could you imagine being a poor mother, totally illiterate and trapped with your children in poverty? In many areas of the world, literacy is a big need . . . and one that should concern us as Daring Daughters.
We encourage you to watch the 3 minute video from Gospel for Asia. It has a darling beginning (of a precious little girl from India sharing a compelling statistic) and then goes on to highlight one Christian woman who went from being illiterate to now being able to read and study the Bible! How beautiful!!!
