Delivered By Hope: One woman's remarkable journey from Sierra Leone to Temple Square
Raised in a country ravaged by civil war, Mariama Kallon narrowly escaped torture by murderous rebel forces. After losing her entire family and everything she owned, she was guided to safety as she found refuge with a Latter-day Saint family in her native Sierra Leone. Touched by the teachings of the Restoration, and full of gratitude for all the Lord had done for her, Mariama wanted to wear her own missionary nametag. With barely a single change of clothes and a Church-sent hygiene kit as her only worldly possessions, she made the trek to the United States and began a full-time mission on Temple Square.
Delivered By Hope tells the true story of Mariama Kallon's remarkable journey, as she was led by the Lord from war-torn West Africa to a new life in a new land.

I first heard Mariama's story when she came to speak at a Stake Relief Society meeting. Since that time I have opportunity to get to know her even better. Her strength and courage have touched my life and her faith and dedication to the Lord has built my testimony even more. She is a true example of the Lord's work and she has inspired my life.

I am so excited to purchase this DVD. I few years ago my sisters and I listened to Mariamas' story and I was so touching and it sure strengthened my testimony! Just the short video makes me want to listen to her story again. It will definitely touch your heart and build your testimony. She is a wonderful,warm,and very strong-natured woman.

I first saw Mariama Kallon at the Salt Lake Time Out For Women. She is such an amazing person with an amazing story and testimony. The video is wonderful. I watched it twice in one day. Once to see for myself and another for Family Home Evening. Her story has strengthened my testimony and brought a wonderful spirit into our home as we watched it. Mariama is a perfect reminder of God's hand in our lives. A reminder that He knows each and everyone of us personally and He knows all that we need when we are in need of it. It's also a reminder of the power of prayer. I recommend this video for everyone to have in their collection.
