Ssali Felix – Coming from a predominately polygamous community and family…
The past often times has a thing or two to describe about us, but when we meet the right people and lead a right life, our past is just a story we tell with pleasure. Felix had all the reasons to stay and be like what he usually knew as the way of life.
Coming from a predominately polygamous community and family, dreams are limited to having as many wives as one can and attaining all the prestige it can bring. Felix’s family is such a big one that children are not respected, believed in or even cared for as they should. In such instances there is no room to ask children about their dreams and ambitions as their inspirations are limited to drunkardness and witchcraft. Even the gospel of salvation is scarce and merely understood.
When we met Ssali his response dictated a hope that was irrefutable and time has proven that he was a right candidate for the opportunity. Through the years he has progressed in his academics to the level of attaining a certificate in building and construction. He has been a dream come alive. He graduated from school and from the ministry. He is an ambitious young man and he has continued to work towards the truth of God. At the moment, he is a tutor at a vocational institute outside Kampala.
Ssali’s life is a testimony and proof that dreams can be rescue.
