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
Jimmy was 14 years old when he was abducted by rebels. He can see God's favor upon him even in that terrible situation, as God gave him a way of escape.
All of us go through hard times and challenges. I wonder, do we see God's favor upon us in those times? Instead of complaining about our challenges, what about thanking Him for being with us and bringing us this far? This does not undermine our pain, which needs to be processed and dealt with; but it does change our perspective through it.
God loves you. He is with you. He has provided a way of escape for you from the powers of sin and darkness, through His own life.

I ran away as hard and fast as I could. I was running for my life. God gave me favor.
