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

God is faithful to strengthen us through our trials and to bring us to victory as we trust in Him. He is Sovereign and will not let us be consumed.
"Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness. 'The Lord is my portion,' says my soul, 'Therefore I hope in Him!'" Lam. 3:22-24
