"The realization that these residents have so little in terms of material goods, love God with so much desire and purity will always amaze me."

Summer 2019

Throughout this week, I have experienced countless encounters with the Mustard Seed residents, my peers, and God.  One that really affected me deeply was Nadia’s prayer after Mass at Jerusalem.  Nadia gave a touching prayer encapsulating her love and gratitude for God.  Specifically, she spoke of her thankfulness for us volunteers.  The prayer brought an extreme sense of holiness and joy over my soul  The realization that these residents have so little in terms of material goods, love God with so much desire and purity will always amaze me.  My feeling is that moment will forever linger in my thoughts and specifically in my prayer life.  There are no words to fully describe the power of that moment.
