I can't believe it's almost one year since I arrived at Our Lady of Mount Carmel parish! I remember it perfectly, it was a Wednesday, January 16th, and I went to School Mass. I was impressed by the kids, I told God "thank you for giving me this new family". But it did not end there, Sunday came and I realized that the School Mass was only a sample of the great family that is Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish.
During the time that I have been here, my mission has been to serve, to help in everything that is needed. And it has been in this mission that God has given me many testimonies of faith and love in the parish, I have seen many families giving their lives to God and helping the Church in many ways.
I was able to accompany the missionaries on the first Mission trip to Peru, I was able to show them a little of what my Sisters do in the rest of the world, I saw their encounter with God, and how they served with joy wherever God sent them.
God, for now, has asked me to return to Lima for a while. I hope to return with the missionaries who are going to the 2nd Mission trip to Peru. So, I will wait for you there so we can return together.
Thank you very much for everything especially for your love for God. I’ll keep you in my heart.
