Lesson Taught
Bible Lesson 2: Jesus Lord of everything 
Ida and Diana went to Bulyowa A to teach about Trust in God. She asked the community to mention what / who they Trust Waako said that he trusts his dog, because the dog has and will never let him down. Margaret said that he trusts her mother because she has been on her side always. Swaibu said that women are not good to trust because they are not reliable and can easily get married to other men . Scovia reacted on Swaibu’s comment saying that it’s men who are hard to trust according to how they treat their wives. “How can a woman trust a man who treats his wife like a donkey or slave?she asked “ Okecho asked the group to think before answering the question because all the people they talked about let them down. That’s why for him he never trusts anyone. Zainadine the old woman stood and gave a testimony about how God saved her from many diseases including Covid that’s why she only trusts in God. Ida told a story of Covid 19. How it killed many people we thought had control over life. Prayer houses were closed, transport, markets, businesses, Airports etc. This showed the world that He(God) is great than the world. Italy lost many people and yet the Pope lives there whom we thought was close to God. Ida continued saying that even Jesus Christ put all His trust in His father God. He showed us the example of who to follow. When we are stranded, God is in control! Just trust Him and wait patiently. Hannah waited patiently without accusing anyone , in the end she was blessed with a baby boy who wasn’t just a baby but prophet Samuel! Let’s trust God and let him control .
