Image for Adong Sunday

Sunday was abducted by the LRA at the age of 7. During that time in captivity, she was severely traumatized and beaten. Luckily, after a year, she escaped with her life and returned home, but after the death of her parents, Sunday found herself as the sole provider for her and her five siblings so she scrambled to support them. Sunday’s life has never remained the same, but being a beneficiary has built hope for her and her sibling’s future, while also giving her the financial support to purchase and plough a piece of land to farm and bring in extra income.

DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE
“I plan to renovate my late father’s house, start up a small business and give my siblings a brighter future.”

FAVORITE THING ABOUT NORTHERN UGANDA 
“My most favorite thing about northern Uganda is the rapid growth despite the war in northern Uganda.”

INTERESTS & HOBBIES
“Crocheting has changed my life through giving me a new hope for the future, boosting my strength, and giving me a second chance in life.”

MESSAGE TO KK intl.
“I have so much appreciation for you guys helping my family. Please continue doing good and God will bless you guys.”

Dear Adong,
You are amazing! What a wonderful, strong young woman you are!
I pray God will keep you and bless you, and give you the desires of your heart.

Hi Adong, my name is Jenna. I live in America and I saw your story online through the KK website. Your story is truly a story of resilience, courage, and hope. I was so touched by hearing your story and learning about all the odds you've overcome. You must be such a strong woman and your family is so blessed to have you! Wishing you a day filled with love. Happy Valentines day!

Hi Sunday!
I just got the beautiful headband you crocheted in the mail today. I want you to know you are incredibly special and so talented. You have been through so much and it's important you know God loves you and cares about you so very deeply. I lost my Dad when I was 10 years old and it's not easy to go through. But I can tell you this -- Jesus will always see you through. He will take care of you, provide for you and always listen to you. He will never forsake you. He has great plans for you and your family. I have saved your picture and know I am praying for you daily that God will bless you and bless you abundantly. I pray that your dreams of renovating your late father's house and starting a business will come true. Put God first and watch what happens! You are beautiful. You are special. You are loved.
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only son that whoever believes in Him would never die but have eternal life."

Dear Sunday,
I am from the USA. in California to be specific. I got a hat for Christmas and I went to thank the person who made it but i could not find them. So my cousin and i decided to thank you. Thank you for all your hard work and love that you put into each and every hat and everything you make. My hat says it is called a Brodie and was made by Vanet Figreda in peru. well even though you arent in Peru I thought i ought to thank someone. so thank you and i wish you good luck. I will be praying for you and Vanet and keeping you in my thoughts. God will provide if you give him your all.
John 3:16-17 says, "For GOD so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For GOD did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him." Also to be saved you must know you have sinned and you are not perfect so the perfect one (Jesus) may cover your sin. Romans 3:23 says "For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of GOD" But recgonize that christ dided for you even though you were a sinner. The god of the universe came to the world and lived a blamless life and dided the death us sinners should have died. Ramans 5:8 says "But GOD demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Jesus died to take away the sins of the world. Romans 5:1 "Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus." All you have to do to be saved is pray to God and surrender your life to the only god. Romans 10:9 says "If you Declare with your mouth 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead you will be saved." But over all god did all this out of his great love for us. and no matter what you are going through NOTHING can seperate you from the love of Christ. Romans 8:38-39 says, "For i am convinced that neither death nor life,neither angels nor demons, neither the preasent nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to seperate us from the love of GOD that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." all in all Jesus will save you.please take this into consideration and give your heart to the lord when you are ready.
With Love and Prayers,
Lauren
