Joyce Hawa Yokie

When Joyce was a little girl her father denied her saying she was the devil (because of her misshaped head) and he would not have her as his daughter. Her grandmother took her to another village and they were very poor and many times she did not have food. There was much suffering. While her grandmother was working in a farm, a boy came and raped her. One day, Pastor Francis went to the village where she lived and saw her hungry and naked. She is thankful she now has food, clothes, and a relationship with Jesus.
