Mary Jones by Ben

by Ben Hewer – aged 10

This is a story about a little girl called Mary who was from a very poor family. She wanted to get a welsh Bible and she went to every house doing jobs to save money but it took her a long long long time!

At last she had enough money to buy her own Bible but it took her six whole years! Then she had another problem: finding where to buy a Bible. Mary had to walk 25 miles all the way to Bala! After a long walk she got there but at first they didn’t have a Bible to buy.

Soon the man found one and Mary ran home to tell her mum. She was really so happy that
she wished she had wings to get there faster (and her bare feet were sore from all the walking)!

The best bit was seeing God answer Mary Jones’ prayers by giving her, her very own Bible.
