Heavenly Father, you have created Atupere in your very own image. You love her and cherish her. Even at a young age, You are using her to care for others as in when she allowed the visitor a place to stay. That is undefiled religion in your eyes. Thank you that in Your sovereignty, Atupere has been able to receive free education. We hope that her future will be bright in you. Amen
