Wow. What a morning. Sarah and I spent the morning sitting down with former child soldiers and hearing their stories one at a time. I was videoing through my tears as we listened to stories of rape, being beaten, having everything taken, their children killed and every possible atrocity known to humanity. And then some.
But their stories did not end there - such joy. As they shared with us their goals and dreams for their futures. How their dignity has been restored through their time at Living Hope. It is inspiring and powerful to see women who have gone through so much and who now know joy and peace. Beautiful. (Can't wait to share the rest!)
Thank you for being willing to have your hearts broken with these women so you can bring us their stories and so we can support them. I can’t wait to hear more.
