My name is Maria and I was born deaf. Because I have many siblings, it was difficult for my Mom to care for me well. Despite the challenges I faced at home, I am very happy as I am now a student at Busega Community School for the Deaf. Here, I have learned sign language and am grateful that I can communicate with my family and the new friends I have made. I have learned a lot about God and now attend King Jesus Church with my family who has also been greatly impacted by the generosity of the school. Please pray for me as I grow in school and in my faith of Jesus Christ.
