Josie's Story

20 Feb. 2015 Posted by Pastor Bill in

Joseline Musiima first came into our lives in 2004, when she was only two years old. When I met her, my eyes drifted over her small but stiffened frame with love and compassion for this tiny orphaned child. Her little fists were firmly clen...ched. She wore an old pink taffeta dress and boy’s shoes. Fear was written all over her face. Her eyes refused to meet mine, as she studied the floor in front of her. As I hugged her, she stiffened even further. Communication was not possible due to the language barrier. We knew it would take the love of God to transform this frightened little girl.
A few days prior to our meeting, the mother, infected with AIDS was once again taken to the hospital, leaving her three small daughters (ages 2, 4, and 8) alone in their small Ugandan house to care for themselves. After several days, one of our staff members went to the house and found the girls cuddled close together in an attempt to be brave. The mother was so thankful to know that her daughters would be loved and in a safe place, if something would happen to her.
After spending ten years in Prepare the Way Ministry children’s home and program, Joseline is now a brilliant young woman with an excellent character. She is a leader in her school and debate club, and received a scholarship for outstanding grades which will continue as she enters high school this year. Josie loves to mentor her “sisters” and friends who are struggling in school.
Joseline is compassionate towards others. It is not uncommon to find her giving away her clothes and other items to those who are less fortunate than she. She has learned to be faithful both at home and at church. We proudly present to you, “Joseline Musiima”.
