Little by little, our landlord became more understanding of our situation. He needs money because he has also been impacted by the crisis in Lebanon and his mother had cancer and he couldn’t afford her treatment. It was heartbreaking. I talked to the people at the church about him and asked if they could help him too, but shortly after his mom passed away, and he couldn’t afford the burial fees. It makes us feel terrible that we cannot pay him the rent we owe him, but we just do not have any money right now.
As I tried to buy cleaning supplies with it, they told me the voucher was just for food, so I returned the cleaning items because I couldn’t afford them. The very next day, I told someone from the church about my experience. He told me that God never abandons his children, and the church gave us a hygiene kit filled with all necessary cleaning items! I couldn’t believe it. It was clearly God sending us exactly what we needed.
We are very happy that she is able to go back in person this year and we hope it will continue like this. She is excited to see all her friends and teachers. The teachers are great and very special to me, especially Sara. Whenever I face any problem, I talk to her. She always listens, helps if she can, comforts and encourages me to stay strong. Just talking with her makes me feel better, I feel like I am talking to my mom or my sister.
Overall, the church has been helping us with so many things since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak! If it wasn’t for them, I don’t know what would have happened to us. Thank God for their support and for everyone making this possible!
