Binta Samantha asks her aunt, Kabalesi Donatha, to tell the story of her life so far. She learns that, while the aunt’s parents loved her, they could not easily support her love for school. So she married, but the marriage was difficult and ended, while health problems followed. But Kabalesi Donatha found that her faith was a great source of guidance to her, and she wishes to pass on this to her niece. Binta Samantha puts her dilemmas squarely to her aunt—that the life of a young person is full of temptations, especially when the yearning in Rwanda is so much for life!

“This wishing for life, Auntie, can make a young person do anything before getting old. But how do I overcome these temptations?” Binta Samantha

“I remember when I learned that [my health was poor]. I almost committed suicide. But then I remembered Jonah’s story in the Bible and got strength from it. God can formulate a new life for you, even when you feel stranded!”
Kabalesi Donatha
