A Car Crash Almost Destroyed Brenda's Life, These Ugandan Children Taught Her to Forgive
Brenda had to make a hard choice after her life-threatening motorcycle accident. Would she forgive the driver who hit her? Her decision rested on the lessons she'd learned from COTN's children in Uganda, who had survived atrocities of their own in Uganda's war. In this episode, Brenda talks about her time in Uganda, and how learning about forgiveness from COTN's children changed her life and the lives of everyone involved in the accident.
