Hello my name is Eva and I am a converted christian. I belong to a a very orthodox family and they follow a different religion. A religion which prohibits freedom to women, where falling in love is a crime and converting to other religion is an unforgivable sin. A sin whose redemption you have to pay with your life .
I took baptism last year and kept it a secret. I also fell in love with a guy who converted along with me to christianity. Word spread and I was confronted with a loud banging at my door and beating me up till I passed out ! when I came to my senses I was in a village surrounded by mud huts and 'righteous people' who kept an eye on me all the time. An old woman told me that I should get prepared to marry a man of my parents choice and forget all about Jesus and christianity. She also informed me that the guy I was in love was shot and died on the spot by moral police.
I had no reason to live ! Life had ended. I would not dare to wish it upon my enemies to feel what I felt that moment. scalding tears of blood gushed forth and my soul creeped into hiding to die a painful torturous death.
I am supposed to get married to a guy I know nothing about. A rape that is being organised by my parents in the name of marriage ! My health was deteriorating so I was shifted to my Aunt's house in the nearby city where one of my friend called up and insisted that she wants to meet me. My Aunt agreed to it seeing no harm as she is my childhood friend.
My friend came home and let me know that my beloved has not died. He somehow managed to survive as he was rushed to the hospital in the near by town. As soon as he was able to, he contacted this friend of mine and sent her to meet me and explain the plan. He has also sent me some money to hide carefully which I have done.
I have access to internet and phone here, though I am barred from using phone I use the internet on the pretext of downloading old blockbuster movies for my Aunt. In order to escape I need to sneak away in the night or early morning, hop in a cab quickly and head away to the railway station. I would meet my guy 125 km away from here. From there we would go far far away in the beautiful mountains, build a small cottage and start a farm business and put this nightmare behind us. We dont have much money to support our plans. We are both educated but the town we plan to settle in is a laidback, sleepy town which provides no oppurtunities to work. We would have to start a business to make a living and blend in with the locals.
There is so much more I want to say ! If not for the fear of being discovered I would have blogged and posted some pictures too. But at the moment I am very nervous. I am down on my knees praying fervently that my story is read with compassion and all the kind souls out there help us out to breathe, live, laugh, love and feel blessed to have heard Jesus Calling and his army of angels helping us ! I Pray to Jesus I pray for his angels. Please help us out as time is ticking away and each donation no matter how big or small matters much. Help me escape this hell ! Please..
We seriously need funds for this. I am taking a giant leap of faith...Please dont let me fall. Thank you all so very very much. May the good Lord bless you for this act of kindness and compassion and saving lives .. Amen !
