Amun week- Day of forgiveness

This morning Dominique taught us about forgiveness. It was a good teaching with clear principles and Dominique gave a testimony of her own life. If you are not ready to forgive, you will hurt yourself, you will become bitter and it even can give physical complains. Many of the children are still thinking about their biological mothers, why did she gave her/him this HIV virus?? Many of the children are still suffering under the stigma of being HIV+, still forgiveness is the key........ 
That came also very clearly out of the testimony of the next speaker: Madam Nakassi. She is a lady we know out of one of the villages. She has a testimony that will not keep your eyes dry! She has been gang raped for three times, on different occasions, she was also infected by HIV/AIDS as a result of the rape. This lady went through hell, everybody rejected her and she got serious health problems. The change in her life came when she started to ask for help, she started to forgive the people who had hurted her and stopped to have selfpity. She is an amazing lady! Her story touched everybody and also the fact that she can help others with sharing her story!! It was a good day, tomorrow we are to say goodbye to them all, peace will be back  in Amecet, but we can look back on a very good week and we will miss them all!
