Omaya and her two children with MERATH’s church partner
Since I got to know the church, my life changed completely. I was finally able to catch my breath. Even the smallest things the church helps me with are so precious to me because of how badly I need them. For example, they helped us with hygiene items, mattresses, and blankets during winter. Whenever they have something available, they remember us. The food e-card I received for three months was like a breeze of fresh air. It gave me so much relief and peace to know I would be able to bring all the food we needed and that I wouldn’t have to worry about this for now.
The support from the church is also emotional and spiritual. Although I am not from the same religion, the church keeps encouraging me and reminds me that God did not abandon me. I feel like I am not alone and that there is still some good left in this world. When my daughter prays that the church would help us with anything, I usually get a call from them shortly after! God doesn’t abandon us.
