Greetings from San Antonio, Texas. Samantha and Priscilla here! We hope everyone had a wonderful and eventful week so far. As this week is coming to an end, we recap on everything we’ve done so far. On our first full day here in San Antonio, we visited the old Ursuline convent and academy which is now an art school. We learned the rich history of the Ursuline sisters!
Everyday we spent about 7 hours in Haven for Hope, where we met wonderful people with outstanding stories. At our time in Haven we met several members, and one person specifically touched our heart, a man who loves art. Our first day at Haven we got to speak to him and view his wonderful art work. We got to know him and understand his reasoning for being in Haven for Hope very well. Sr. Elizabeth introduced us as she was starting her meditating coloring session. He immediately asked us if we wanted him to draw us something. He indeed has great talent. He is just one of the many gems here at Haven.
On our last day here, we sure ended with a bang! Serving lunch to over 500 of the members that live in Haven is surely something we will never forget. Although, this week was full of memories, compassion, patience, and gratitude, saying goodbye to the wonderful members is something that hit us hard. We hope everyone in Haven finds their way, because with God by our side everything will turn out just fine!
