“I have been waiting for the perfect moment to write on this.. On the 11th of April 2020 at exactly 8:30 am my elder brother Fakanfa Babington broke the news to me of my sister testing positive to this dreaded coronavirus there in Baltimore USA.. I was devastated. I couldn’t do much in the office that day. Mum later got to know and became more worried.. We all sent in words of encouragement to her.. We prayed and fasted fervently and as always God NVR fails..
