Issue #53 - September 2016

As the first born child, my family has relied on me for almost everything over the
years. I have always been the pillar that helps my family stand, supporting them in
all aspects of life ranging from job related issues to school fees; overseeing all
family businesses, and giving advice on financial issues. One of the greatest
achievements in my life has been building my mother a house, a place we can call
home and every time I look at that house I say, Wow, it was God who enabled
me do this.
When I lost my job with FINCA two years ago, it took me by surprise because the
termination came on short notice and being the main person my family relied on,
I found myself at crossroads. Everyone in my family became stranded. Surviving
those two years was only by the grace of God. I know that people have different
ways of coping with hard situations but when I remember those two years of
unemployment, I know for sure it was God who held my hand through it all.

different fellowships which kept me busy through the week: I joined Bible Study
Fellowship (BSF), attended Prophet Mbonyes fellowships on Tuesday, attended
cell on Wednesday, came for the Friday evening prayers at church, and before I
knew it, the week would be gone. What I experienced during those two years
cannot be fully described in words because people would see me looking good
and smart yet I was hurting inside.

I encourage everyone reading this testimony never to give up. If your heart is
set on something, do not give up. Some people kept telling me to continue
selling clothes but deep in my heart I knew I was meant to be in the banking
industry while I sell clothes on the side. And that is exactly what I am doing
today. I know I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

surviving remnant of His people. This scripture spoke so much comfort into my
life and was a constant reminder that if God is a God of second chances, He will
stretch out His hand upon me and meet me in my greatest time of need. One
night I had a dream that God had given me a job without having to go through the
interview process but we laughed it off with my cell members because that is not
common in this day and age.
One fine day, when all hope of getting a job was fading away, God remembered
me. I was requested to help set up an office in Kuffu and ensure that all the
required documents for Goshemite Business Solutions were in place; I never
thought that I would be hired to manage the business. What that taught me is
that when one is given a task, big or small, they should do it with diligence and
honesty. If I had done shoddy work with the documents, I would not have been
considered the right person to manage the business. When I got the job at
Goshemite Business Solutions, it was absolute proof that God can do the
impossible.
