In Murang’a, Kenya, a woman named Stella Githinji is making headlines. She is a porridge vendor, but she recently achieved something remarkable. She completed building a house for her father, who had abandoned her and her family many years ago.
Stella was determined to provide a safe home for her dad, and worked hard to build the house. She used the profits from her porridge business to purchase the materials and hire a contractor. Despite her father's past actions, Stella wanted to show him that she still loves him. For her, it was an act of reconciling the pain and hurt she had experienced from her father's absence. She said, "I was determined to build the house for my father despite what he did and I thought that if I build for him, he will come and live with us.
I want to do things right and I want to be able to provide for my father." This remarkable act of love and forgiveness by Stella has been met with admiration and praise from the local community. Some have even gone so far as to call her an inspiration. She has set an example of forgiveness and unconditional love, and has inspired many to turn the other cheek and strive to build a better future. Hopefully, her story will spread, and more people will find the courage to forgive and move on.
