"Shakira showed me that nothing material in this world matters as much as love and giving to others. "

Summer 2019

When we went to Jerusalem on Wednesday we started our visit with Mass and several of the residents joined us.  After Mass ended, a resident named Shanice, went to the front of the chapel in her wheel chair and started singing for everyone.  It was a special moment because most would just see her as an incapable girl because of her disabilities, but she is incredibly talented.  After she finished, Shakira began to pray with all of us.  She could have prayed for herself, but instead she prayed for us.  It touched my heart that no matter what she is dealing with she is so selfless, loving and giving.  Shakira showed me that nothing material in this world matters as much as love and giving to others.
