Mission Bite #176: True Peace

Sandra was only a child when soldiers in her country killed her parents. She arrived in Uganda at the age of 16. Instead of peace, she experienced trafficking and exploitation. Sandra came to our women’s shelter when she was only 18. She was severely traumatized and fragile.

Through intensive counseling, therapy, vocational training, discipleship and care, God began to heal and transform Sandra’s life. At the shelter, she found a new family of fellow residents and staff and a place to belong. Through the shelter, she discovered that she was created in God’s image and love. The shelter provided her the opportunity to experience true peace through God’s healing and transformation. Today Sandra is a vibrant and joyful woman, empowered through God’s love and hope.
