AUTHOR

McDonnell, Faith J. H., Akallo, Grace

SUMMARY

More than 30,000 children have been kidnapped in Uganda. Now one of them has a voice. When Grace Akallo was fifteen years old, rebels from the Lord?'s Resistance Army raided her school. Thus began her nightmarish existence as one of northern Uganda?'s thousands of child soldiers. Forced to endure savagery, starvation, abuse and other horrors with only her faith to sustain her, Grace eventually escaped to share her story with the world. Faith McDonnell is an American activist and writer with a special concern for the future of the vulnerable Acholi people of northern Uganda. In Girl Soldier, Grace?'s personal account and Faith?'s historical and spiritual insights are woven together to tell the story of Uganda?'s forgotten children. Be inspired by this heartfelt account and moved to do your part in making sure that these children will not be forgotten. ?A precious gift from two women, both uniquely qualified to speak for the suffering children of Uganda, one an eloquent survivor and the other a fearless advocate. It is no coincidence that their names are Grace and Faith.'?Michael Card, Bible teacher and musician ?Girl Soldier is not fiction, yet that fact becomes harder to believe with every page we turn. This book is more than just a call to action. It is a challenge to our moral compass.'?Adrian Bradbury, founder and director, GuluWalk ?A much-needed reminder of the suffering and faith of the people of northern Uganda. Both have gone largely unnoticed for too long.'?The Rt. Rev. Robert W. Duncan, bishop, Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh; moderator, Anglican Communion Network ?A poignant reminder that the darkness of the soul and the cruel behaviors it leads toare more devastating than we could imagine. This is an incredible account that demands a hearing and invites a response.'?Steven W. Haas, vice president, World Vision InternationalMcDonnell, Faith J. H. is the author of 'Girl Soldier A Story of Hope for Northern Ugandas Children', published 2007 under ISBN 9780800794217 and ISBN 0800794214.
