I am super excited that I am finally returning home. Relatives and friends were worried about my situation since I was surviving through well-wishers.
I was worried but I am grateful to everyone who supported me throughout the painful journey.
The ambassador invited me to his office after he was informed about my situation and it took him seconds to come to my rescue.
I was really humbled. I stayed in Harare for two days while waiting for my plane ticket and other formalities to be completed.

It was a challenge that the almighty gave me the strength to overcome.
