GOD CAN chronicles the journeys of six people in Uganda, telling each story with frank honesty and integrity. They are both heartbreaking and inspiring. Through unbelievable hardships, war, and oppression (both physically and spiritually), God has sustained them and has done the miraculous on their behalf. “I hope this book encourages you that God can work out whatever you are going through. He loves you. When we can’t do anything, God Can.” – Erica Mbasan
Chris was an innocent young child when he was abducted by the LRA. He didn't ask for that life, but he was forced into it. I thank God that He eventually made it out and is where he is today. This got me thinking, though. How many of us willingly submit ourselves to slavery? Jesus has come to set us free from bondage, but how many of us decide to stay in sin? Unlike the innocent children abducted by the LRA, we are willing participants in defiance to God. It is the greatest tragedy. Jesus came that we may have abundant life, and walk in everything He designed us for. So many would rather stay in chains and walk in the deeds of darkness. Come out from the rebellion against God and be set free! Choose Jesus, choose life and freedom.
God Can: When We Can’t Do Anything, God Can
I was 12 years old the night I was abducted. We reached a river, and we had to be carried across. My uncle dove into the water and swam as fast as he could to safety. He got away that night. The rest of us didn't know how to swim. My two brothers and I were taken up to Sudan, deep into the bush. It was not easy. I was still young and they forced me to carry many heavy things, including a big gun. When we reached their hidden barracks they began to train us. They taught us how to fight. They tried to harden our hearts.
