"The fact that, even in a horribly unfortunate situation, she still found faith in God’s love, and somehow found the love in her heart to pray for others who were born into much more fortunate situations than her. "

Summer 2019

On Two stories that I remember specifically from my week at Mustard Seed Communities, both have to do with the residents.  The first story was from my time at Jacob’s Ladder in which there was a resident named Omar who would take me by the hand and we would walk around the grounds at Jacob’s ladder  We must have walked around 15 miles. I followed him everywhere, his only form of communication was a laugh and the only look on his face was a smile.  For some reason his joy hit home especially hard for me.  Another story that struck me was during the time we spent serving at Jeruslame when residents like Shanice and Nadia would share their talents like sinigng or praying.  Speficually Nadia’s prayer made me cry harder than I think I ever had.  The fact that, even in a horribly unfortunate situation, she still found faith in God’s love, and somehow found the love in her heart to pray for others who were born into much more fortunate situations than her.  These two stories obviously cannot completely capture my time at Mustard Seed, but I think they are good little windows into the love one feels during this mission trip.
