The Least of These: A Review of “Mama Maggie”

51ZQbbJzgIL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_

Living in United States, it is easy to take our lifestyle and religious freedom for granted. But when you read a book like Mama Maggie, it gives you a heightened awareness of the comfortableness of our lives, and a reminder of how so many of our fellow Christians live in poverty, and how they endure persecution because of their faith.

Mama Maggie tells the story of a woman, born into a wealthy Egyptian Coptic family that left a luxurious life as a professor to work among the zabaleen, the garbage people.

Living in incredible filth and poverty, the garbage people are plagued by sickness and illiteracy. But Mama Maggie works to show the love of God them, Christian and Muslim, by educating them, teaching them trades, tending to their wounds and sickness, and protecting the helpless and abused.

I found myself inspired and challenged by the story of Mama Maggie’s faith and service, and would encourage Christians to read her story, and learn from her example of Godliness. If you enjoyed Kisses from Katieyou are sure to be blessed by the unforgettable story of Mama Maggie. I would give Mama Maggie an “A”.

You can find out more about Mama Maggie’s ministy, Stephen’s Children here.
