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
LRA rebels tried to harden the hearts of their new abductees. They indoctrinated, mocked, forced them into heavy labor and trained them to fight and shed blood. The enemy of our soul tries to do the same in the western world with ease and luxury while he steals everything away from us. Praise God that we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ! God was with Chris through all of the trauma that he endured, and He brought him out of that place. God can do the same to all of us who are enslaved in our hearts and minds to the god of this world.
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.
