Since I was diagnosed with high pressure, my life has never been the same(incapacitated). Receiving this money means good health as I will be able to get medical care. I do occasionally experience lower abdominal pains. A doctor suggested I should go for an X-ray. All these require money which presently has proved to be a challenge.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The source of my happiness is that the Lord has never forsaken me. Challenges are part of us humans but He is mighty and through Him nothing is impossible. My fellow followers at church do frequently visit and encourage me. The fact that I am not in this alone is enough reason to keep me going.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
Being unwholesome is my greatest challenge. This has made me not able to provide for myself. I have now resorted to relying on my child for support( medicine and food).
