There is so much I can say about Zaina. This woman is amazing. The first time I met her, ther was a distrust in her eyes. You could see that she couldn't possibly understand why we wanted to help her. She was also Muslim.
Fast forward 9 months. We are driving through Mukono town and we park on the street. As we got out of the car, I could see the the excitement in her eyes. As we crossed the street, she literally wrapped her arms around me and picked me up off the ground!
She was so proud to share with us all her projects. She is selling roasted corn, roasted plantains and rearing goats. She as so excite to tell us hat she is making a profit and is saving money.
She shared with us that she has accepted Christ and "loves Him with her whole heart".
Then she told us about Veronica. One day she found this precious 13 year old girl sleeping on the roof of a house. She had been abandoned and would sleep there to keep herself safe from animals. She proudly told us that she is her foster mom and raced in the house to show us the "official" paperwork.
We are so proud of Zaina! From a place of despair to opening her home to an abandoned child....Gods redemption is a beautiful thing.
