I left South Sudan because I was attacked by soldiers. They wanted to shoot me. They tried to release the bullet but it wouldn’t come out. I know it was the power of God that saved me.
I left South Sudan the following morning, but the roads were closed. I knelt in prayer and God opened a way for me and I came through the bush.
I had lost all my money and all of my property. I was left with nothing. When I arrived here, I built a home with my own hands using stones I gathered. The church helped me with the roof. I started cutting firewood and selling it to earn money. And truly it was very difficult. But now that I’m in the savings group, I can save and get a loan which helps me to buy things I need. I have a dream that I will start a business and then I will be able to fully support my child.
Because of the Gospel and the encouragement in the Word through the savings group, I have learned to release my pain. I know everything happens according to God’s will. I did not go to school, but I have learned to read my Bible – it is the power that saved me from death and brought me to a safer place where I am now. I believe I am alive because of the power of God. If not for God, I would be dead now.
