Sarahi Perez in Guatamala

My 2nd and 3rd graders are my biggest joy, and being their religion teacher is truly what gives me the strength to endure anything…
I have this motto that no matter what space I enter, I should always leave it better than when I entered it – like fixing a torn poster, picking up trash, leaving my classroom clean for the next person…

1803 Perez Sarahi5

I recently went to some of the poorest communities with one of the priests from our parish here in Carcha. The community he went to celebrate Mass in had, no electricity, shortage of water, and the people spoke only their native language – no Spanish. I did not say much. I smiled and nodded a lot, but somehow I felt like I was preaching the word of God louder than if I was speaking. Going to witness Fr. Victor baptize 13 people and welcome a whole family to the faith was the most beautiful thing I have witnessed so far.
