It’s obvious and normal to suffer because of being separated physically, but over time one begins to understand why the Lord allows that type of suffering.
I met Jazmina and Mayra in 2014. Honestly, the time I spent with them helped me a great deal. Their joy always amazed me. When I met them for the first time, I felt like I had known them for a long time, and I don’t know why.
It’s obvious and normal to suffer because of being separated physically, but over time one begins to understand why the Lord allows that type of suffering. I care for both of them a lot and I know that they continue to help me from where they are. I have no doubt. I identify myself as frightful and distrustful, but reading the memories about them or the other girls helps me a lot. Just when I want to be generous with the Lord, they intercede for me.
Not too long ago, I read a memory in which Mayra told another girl that the Lord was going to help, and that she should trust in Him, and another about Jazmina when she entered as a candidate. It’s funny, because I didn’t realize that she entered as a candidate a year after I entered the Home of the Mother on the same day, April 20, but with the difference of one year.
They have been present in important moments of my life, like when I made my first commitment in the Home of the Mother Youth, my birthday… and now, more than ever in the important decisions that I have to take, in things that I have to leave behind and attachments that distance me from that way I must go … I am sure that it will not be easy, but if they helped me before, they will also help me now.
