22 Stories...

The first couple days of the institute that I am in, here in Luwero, we are all sharing our life stories...Today it took 4 hours to hear the first 7 stories...

It is so amazing to hear how God has been so faithful to everyone even through life events that could and should crush us. Today I heard stories of people who were abused, of people whose fathers abandoned them, of people whose children and siblings were captured by LRA soldiers and have never been heard from again, people who were addicts, people who have lost husbands, and wives....So many stories...

The coolest thing is...God knows all of their stories and He has woven our lives together in this exact moment in time. We are all here for a purpose....To be used by God to minister to the people of Uganda.

I can't wait to hear more stories tomorrow!
