We all have people who inspire us because of their stories. For Ps. Tendayi I don’t have to read a story because what she has gone through and overcame was in real time. I am in awe of her survival and her ability to be a conduit for life and light to others after what she went through. It can only be God who sustained her and enabled her to give back to others. It makes me want to trust God more for my situations because I know that if he did it for Ps Tendayi he can do it for me. Keep on shining Ps Tendayi, the world needs more God fearing women like you.👏👏👏 Marita
