Knowing the purpose of your life and let it become your light

My story is a challenge and an inspiration at the same time, I was born in family of 6 children :2 boys and 5 girls, I'm the second born, my parents worked, our lifestyle were a normal one. Everything started at my birth, I was born with an illness of (asthmatic bronchitis) that was the reason of me being a fragile girl, even the strong wind could disturb me, it wasn't easy at period because I made my mum suffer a lot she couldn't go to work cause we spend couple of months in the hospital but as time passed I was cured.

 My childhood i passed almost alone, I didn't play even enjoy school time as normal girls of my age because of my sickness, and during that period I was suffering of imagination trouble, and that causing me to have some illusion inside, it traumatized me alot and as I was alone it makes it even harder but with time as I grow up and with the help of prayers it finished then everything was okay until my university time.

I went to India (New Delhi) for my undergraduate studies, arrived in India things become worst, that was the painful time of my life and so the best one indeed because a miracle happened at the end, I started again to be sick but that time around was bad, I couldn't do a month without going to hospital, funniest thing I was knowing by almost every hospital in my town because of my sickness, first of all it comes with estomac problems and despite taking drugs it couldn't change but rather it became more and more critical, after some cup of months suffering they discover it was ulcer that causes all the damage more than I vomited blood and I had terribly lost my weight. Then after I was diagnosed of nerves problems, I couldn't be focus on my studies and every time I tried I had blood running from my nostrils. We did everything we could, my parents supported my full traitement and hospitals bills but nothing changed, I experienced a life without hope and there is nothing bad in life than to be hopeless, I cried every single day and prayed but no sign of recovery until God helps me and all my prayers were answered and I was totally cured only by the grace of almighty God and from that day I understood what my purpose was in this world and I promised to myself that from that day I will living for those who are in the same situation I was years back before being healed by my savor Jesus Christ, because I lived loneliness, rejection, humiliation,  all kind of unwanted things and I know and understand them better than anyone on how the feel, then I put everything I had at the service of others whose the creation of foundation of "BUENE HOPE FOUNDATION" (it is a non profit organization that come to help of orphans, widows, invalids(person of physical challenges), and elderly) and the objective of it is to give those people hope and offer them a better future. Actually, we already establish 3 branches of the foundation in D R Congo ( Bukavu,  Goma, and Kampala ) we have help and impact many families and take charge of many orphans, the best gift we can give to them is a bright future.

Hello, Tino,

It is true what Apostle Paul says, “when I am weak then I am strong”. Your physical frailty as a child because of bronchitis has made you a strong woman today able to support and help those who are deemed weak.

Thank you for sharing your story!
