"Being with Donovan that day filled me with joy.  "

Summer 2019

On Wednesday, we went to Jerusalem for the second time.  We were having Mass in the chapel and then the residents started entering.  One of the residents I met the day before, Donovan, came and sat next to me and held my hand for the whole Mass.  Following Mass we were singing songs led by the residents, Donovan joined in the singing and that was the first time I had heard him say an actual word. After Mass, he stayed with me for the whole day and he started asking for Mangos and he offered me one of his.  Later in the day we were hanging out with some of the other residents and we even made Donovan laugh.  Being with Donovan that day filled me with joy.
