Through inspiring worship music and thought-provoking conversations about faith and lifestyle, this series aims to uplift Christian values such as hope, care, and compassion and to contribute to a better society.

The Yellow boy episode explores the remarkable journey of Wilson Bugembe, a celebrated gospel artist from Uganda and serving as the leader of Worship House in Kampala. He has been honored with prestigious awards, including the Best Gospel Artist Pearl of Africa Music Awards, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to gospel music. One of Wilson's notable songs, "Omwoyo we," beautifully captures the essence of the Holy Spirit.

Wilson's life is a testament to the power and grace of God. As an orphan who lost his parents to HIV, he found himself surviving on the streets of Kampala, earning him the nickname "yellow" due to the color of his shirt. For over two years, he relied on discarded food and sought shelter under a tree. However, by God's grace, Wilson's life underwent a miraculous transformation. Today, he is celebrated as a prominent figure in his country and actively engages in various charitable works, inspiring others with his story of resilience and hope.
