We have been involved in so many victories, winning the souls, feeding the hungry, encouraging the weak, etc…, but today was a very special day because everyone we met we left exceptionally happy, full of joy, energetic, and empowered. Most are hoping for some Christmas miracle, and today some were delivered. The journey was successful; giving food to wonderful people of God and praying for them was fun.
Meanwhile, at the end of our journey, we meet Mrs. Nayiga and Mr. Balam whose lives seem to be buried. Mrs. Nayiga was in her house lying down, sick, throwing up, and I knew this was why JFM took this route. A neighbor whispered to me how Mrs. Nayiga was HIV/AIDS positive, and a few meters was Mr. Balam, who had the same case. Balam was somehow strong, but Nayiga, perhaps ARVs, were not available for months in her single tiny sorry stated room.
Even raising a tongue to speak was hard for Nayiga. JFM has exposed me to a lot, and today I realized why we exist. I condemned the stigma exercised by neighbors and encouraged them to show love and mercy to such people since they reap what they sow. Nayiga was relieved, and by the time JFM left, she could breathe a collective sigh of relief. We hope to revisit her with more food right now; she needs love from people.
