SO AS NOT TO LIVE DISTRACTED THIS 2021…
… IT IS GOOD TO MAKE A MEMORY OF 2020 AS A YEAR FULL OF BLESSINGS
Reaching the end of a year is always an experience that accumulates many memories, names, events, sorrows, joys, and above all a lot of gratitude. However, 2020, in addition to all that, gives us the opportunity to proclaim that the providence of our Father God is INFINITE.
With the pain of having separated from many, we are alive, in the middle of a pandemic; we have health; With the most severe food crisis that Venezuela has experienced, our table has not lacked daily bread and we were able to share it beyond our table. When all the churches were closed, the people sought more of God and joined in the prayerful reading of the Word and the presence of Jesus in each brother/sister.
Faced with the collapse of the health system, the solidarity of doctors, volunteers, and leaders grew; When economic resources were very scarce, Venezuelan foundations joined us in a network and we managed to improve our physical structures, they donated medicines to serve the population of our sectors and beyond. At the precise moment that the water put our lives at risk, we managed, united as a single-family, that the water reached our homes and distant sectors.
And when many shouted that there were no reasons to celebrate, our CONGREGATION and the CANDIDA MOTHER FAMILY proclaimed a year of joy and praise because our God, our Father, in the middle of this story, continues to send us down the paths to ANNOUNCE with our Life that GOD IS FATHER and WE ARE ALL BROTHERS. And that will be credible if we live like Jesus who chose POVERTY for himself.
With a heart overflowing with Joy, sustained in the infinite love of the Father, I wish you a Happy New Year ...
THANK YOU VERY MUCH, FATHER!
