Sunday Komakech

NG28590 Sunday is from Gulu, in Northern Uganda, where decades of war and Joseph Kony’s reign brought great suffering. His parents fled to an Internally Displaced People’s (IDP) camp, seeking refuge for their lives, and Sunday spent his childhood there. He witnessed terrors of war and horrors that no human being especially a child, should ever witness. Sunday was confined in the camp, totally dependent, and always in fear.

Sunday’s father was even abducted by the rebels for a time when Sunday was 10 years old. This is when he was enrolled in Africa Renewal’s Child Development Program (CDP) in Gulu and embraced by the community at Gulu Bible Community Church. As a participant in the CDP, Sunday was able to attend school and learn to care for himself. Through the care of the Africa Renewal staff and the church community, he came to know more about God’s love and accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior. His experience in the program has shaped him and taught him how crucial it is to have good leadership in every community. He has taken on leadership roles at school and wants to pursue a law degree to further his dream of administering fairness in communities.

Although Sunday’s life has been filled with challenges and exposure to the inhumanity of war, he sees his past as a testimony to the hope that is found in Christ. Through the lens of his difficult childhood, he finds meaning and purpose for his life, and desiring to become an attorney to serve people and to bring transformation to the justice system, in his own words, “not as a revenge, but as one redeemed by the Lord.”

The staff who work with Sunday say: “Sunday is an advocate. He is resilient, someone who does not give up very easily. He is diligent in whatever he does and clearly knows what he wants to be.”
