When the church has diapers, they give me some. The church also gives us food vouchers, blankets, mattresses, and heating supplies. When I first came to the church, I felt like it was a foreign place to me. Very soon though, as we got to meet the people here and spend more time with them, we became very comfortable. We felt at peace, more than in the outer community. Some people from our community were not pleased with us getting to know the church and tried to scare us. So I told them that I wished we all were like the Christians and that we all had the mercy, love, and honesty that they have within their hearts.
I feel like there is mercy here. The teachers empathize with the children and really care about them. The children love coming here so much! If my daughter gives me a hard time, I tell her “Behave, or you won’t go to school tomorrow!” That is the most efficient threat because of how much she hates to miss a single school day!
