I am grateful for the opportunity to meet these precious children in Mbale, Uganda this past year. All of these children you see in this photo are a victim to hydrocephalus and spina bifida. Several of them are paralyzed from the waist down and are unable to care for themselves or get around on their own. CURE hospital along with Miriam, the school director and staff are working to restore not only everyday life skills but restoring hope in these children that there is a Savior, named Jesus who loves them just the way they are!  Name of school- “Overcomer’s” Thank you in advance on behalf of these children!

    The caption for this picture reminds me of Mandisa’s new song (You’re an Overcomer) (my favorite) on our local Christian station. I turn up the radio in my car and sing it loud!

    Such happiness on their faces even in circumstances beyond their control. To know and possess an innocent happiness is God-given and the most satisfying.

    Hope you win this contest.

    God Bless You,
