Hadija (12) was born into a non-Christian family in a small #Ugandan fishing village on the shores of Lake Victoria. She began #secretly attending #church services as a 5-year-old. Despite severe punishment from her non-Christian father, Hadija continued to attend church. Eventually, the abuse became so severe that she had to flee. A #Christian woman at church, Mellina, took her in and is in the process of #adopting her. Please continue to #pray for Hadija and Mellina.
