From Betty’s Heart

As I say, this is from my heart but really it’s much more than that.  Some would say it’s a manifesto, but I think rather it’s the preamble to me sharing with the world my thoughts and driven internal motivations and interests. 

This will be my public diary on what can only be God’s gift of a second start to my life and my blessed life’s journey because of him. 

Actually I think it’s more than just my own life’s journey.  I believe that I’m living out God’s plan for me to share and help others.  How else without his help and intervention would a South Sudanese orphan alone who was left for dead after 3 days of beatings as punishment for rejecting a forced marriage at 13 find herself as a student with a 4-year scholarship at Maryville College, with a God sent father who saved me and from halfway around the world?  My father has made it possible for me to save thousands of my villagers from certain death. Without God’s help, how could I now be living in the towns of Maryville and Knoxville Tennessee which are full of people that love and support me?    

Not only am I learning how to take care of myself, but I am also gaining the means and knowledge on how to pass along the opportunity for a new and better existence for my family and my country.     One which exists where slavery and torture and almost the world’s worst example of depravity for most of its citizens and especially its young girls is all that they all can hope for.    This knowledge of what it’s like at home for those I saved once – and really for everyone else – is my motivation and God’s mission for me having the opportunity to share with anyone that reads this, the story of my life’s journey.
