“I know it was God’s doing, because while in prison, I met someone who helped me to think about my life and to make a change in behavior. As soon as I was released, I started attending church.”
Sandrine Umwiza gave her life to Christ after the preaching on Sunday morning. She says, “I have lived a sinful life ever since I became an adult. I have been a drunkard, spending my evenings drinking alcohol and dancing at night clubs, and doing many other evil things. I also had many bad friends, and they were facilitating me to sink deep down into sin. I never attended church at all.”
She adds, “Some time back, while in the night club, someone lost his phone, and I was accused of stealing it. As a result, I was put into prison! This was very terrifying and hurting, since I had been wrongly accused.”
She goes on to say that, “Even though this was the case, I know it was God’s doing, because while in prison, I met someone who helped me to think about my life and to make a change in behavior. As soon as I was released, I started attending church.”
She happily adds that, “Today, I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart. I feel a lot of joy and peace, and I’m so happy to be a Christian. I know that my life will never be the same again.”
