Spreading joy and love!

By Diane Holloway

The joyful season that is Christmas can be seen, heard and smelled for weeks. We seem to be happier, more generous and more loving this time of year, don’t we? For many of us, it really is the most wonderful time of the year. Like a lot of people, I love decorating, cooking and entertaining.

Communications/Volunteer Coordinator

An inspiring, very personal devotional

By Joviale Kambo
Social Work Intern

This is my story
A story of a girl who was kidnapped at the age of 4
This is a story of a girl who left her country and became a refugee at the age of 5
A story of a girl who, when growing up, only spoke French
But now speaks 4 other languages
This is a story of a girl who was thrown in high school as a freshman at the age of 18
But now is on her way to grad school
A story of a girl who is willing to dedicate the rest of her life to helping others
This is a story of a girl who is now a woman
A story of a woman who says NO to the famous sentence “give up”
This is a story of a woman who proudly says to you: follow your dreams
Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise
Last but not least,
This is a story of a woman who speaks of herself in third person.
This is a story about me!
I thank you all for listening. Have a great day!
