Stephen Opio was born on April 16, 2005. He has a sister named Sabela Ayuba. His mother was abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army under the horrendous leadership of Joseph Kony. She suffered brutal treatment from the soldiers and was forced to live in the jungle for three years traveling everywhere by foot. Stephen was a baby and was left at home with the father and sister which is a miracle. This young boy has experience much pain and sorrow that no child should ever had to go through. His mother was able to escape from the LRA and entered counciling. At the age of seven, he is back with his parents. His mother is sad and his father is an alcoholic. They live in very impoverished conditions, and the parents are not able to give their children the care they need.

Stephen will move into Pastor Bosco's home once he is sponsored, where he will receive love, and Christian care. He will enroll in school where he will be in Primary 2. Along with Pastor Bosco and family, we will work with any remaining family to bring the love and healing of Jesus into their lives.
