Impact Space Impact – Saviour’s Story

Impact Space has touched my life and contributed positively to my spiritual and physical well-being and that of my family’s. I was depressed, frustrated, discouraged, lost my business and my job to the pandemic, weighed down, but God restored my hope through Impact Space Organization – they gave me hope through the encouragement I received from the community site, I got a job when I did not expect one, I can pay my bills, and support the family, I started a small scale poultry farming in my locality courtesy of Impact Space Organization. Presently “My poultry farm has increased to about 600 chickens; I dug a well that is serving the community and got one employee”.

My Name is Savior Uchi, I’m from Nigeria. I joined Impact Space, through social media in July 2020 at the time when the organization was doing a cash giveaway to support members during the pandemic.

Before I registered on Impact Space, there was a retrenchment in the company I worked with as a result of the impact of the pandemic. I was employed as a contract staff – and we were all laid off in January 2020 as the company could no longer pay us our monthly salaries due to low patronage and restrictive Covid-19 guidelines imposed by the state government. 

With responsibilities at home and bills to pay; I ventured into a private business with the little savings I got, in January; In July 2020, my business assets were looted by robbers. I got frustrated – everything I labored for vanished. I had some skills I would have harnessed to startup again – but couldn’t not due to pandemic – the lockdown, restrictions in movement, there was nothing left for me to do. I was weighed down, discouraged, frustrated, strength was failing me, I concluded 2020 was a wasted year. I needed some encouragement, I needed hope, I needed someone to assure me of a promising future, I needed people who will understand my situation and let me know all is well – at exactly that time, God brought Impact Space Organization my way to end my worries.

I could not believe all that I needed at that time was right before me, got lots of encouraging posts, comments, inspiration and motivations, spirit-lifting quotes from members of the Impact Space community. My joy was restored at some point even when I had nothing yet and was not sure of survival in the remaining months of the year, I started encouraging others too, using my situation to give them hope we didn’t see yet or know how it was going to come through. I didn’t know God was working through me. I also didn’t know my activities on Impact Space community were been rated. Impact Space became a home for me, every minute, every hour, I go through reading encouraging posts from christians from other regions just to remain strong and hopeful.

I got a total cash reward of $70 from daily giveaway and reward on community activities – this was not just a gift but a life- saving token received from Impact Space. I was able to meet some pressing needs and paid a few bills with it, in July and early August when I expected less – I could smile again at the period, shame was taken away.

The bigger picture sprouted out when I got an offer from Impact Space to be engaged on monthly pay – God does not forsake his own no matter what, even when we do not worth it. At the time I expected nothing, at the time I concluded the year as a wasted one, at the time I almost let go, at the time I felt God was partial, at the time I had no hope of any Job offer – God showed up and presented an offer to me on a platter of gold. Hope has been restored, doubt has been cleared, God appears when all human efforts fail.

Impact Space has been a life changing opportunity for me. With my monthly earnings from the organization, I started a small poultry farm in my community, courtesy of Impact Space. Amazingly, “My poultry farm has increased to about 600 chickens, I dug a well that is serving the community and got one employee.

I can now carter for my needs and support my family, life has never been the same ever since God led me to Impact Space organization, it’s been God alone all the way… Impact Space is Changing Lives!
