“I am the light of the world; anyone who follows me will not be walking in the dark; he will have the light of life.” 

John 8:12

Some people share the light of Jesus with others especially brightly. Sister Anthonia is one of these people. A religious sister in Sierra Leone, she has dedicated her life to God and to supporting people in poor communities. It is the love of God that motivates her and keeps her going when things are tough.

“This is God’s work,” she says of the help she gave to little Lombeh, when she was unwell because she did not have enough food.


Light a candle and say a prayer together that your family may share Jesus’ light with the world.
