30 Days of Faith: Day 10

· · · Day 10: For Jume, Ramadan is a time to remember others. “I pray for all people, people who have died, the living, people who are troubled, people crying, people fighting,” says Jume, a refugee from Myanmar living in the US state of Texas. ”This Ramadan, I pray for the health and future for my kids in America and Thailand.” Despite the emotional hardship of being so far from some of her children and having a daughter who is frequently hospitalized because of a heart condition, Jume says the Islamic fasting month brings her hope. “I’m happy. I fast, I read the Koran and I pray. Happiness is believing in God.”
