Mayra was my camp counselor during camp this year and she taught me a lot of things. She would always tell us that we could give more than we were giving, and even though we said that we were giving everything, she knew that we could give more, much more.
I remember that one afternoon we were at our small group meetings and we were talking about joy and sadness. I remember how Mayra said to us that she didn’t understand how so many people have completely forgotten God and how they say that they are happy… She started to cry and said, “He suffered so much…He gave His Life for each one of us. And we forget about Him without even realizing it.” It hurt her to think of how we forget about Him who created us.
The last time I saw her, at the “March for Life” here in Chone, we didn’t talk much. She told me a few things, and then at the end, she made me promise that I would never fall away from the Home of the Mother. I promised. The she told me, “Our Lady has chosen you to be part of her Gift, don’t let her down. You know that this is good for you. You know that near Our Lord and Our Lady you are happy; never fall away.”
