“The Gonzaga–Heart’s Home family recently reunited to celebrate the beginning of a new family. Amy Koreski and Jed Nelsen were married in St. Aloysius Church at Gonzaga University on May 31. Amy was one of the first Americans to go on a mission with Heart’s Home, and if Amy’s life with Jed is anything like her life with Heart’s Home, their marriage will be very fruitful!
Since Amy returned to Spokane after her time in Honduras, three Gonzaga students went on mission, a student Heart’s Home was born, and many students’ lives at Gonzaga were filled with joy, companionship, and compassion.
To see the Gonzaga–Heart’s Home family reunited for Amy’s wedding was to see the work of the Holy Spirit in the flesh. Ever since I first met Heart’s Home, I was amazed at how undeniably the Heart’s Home movement is a movement of the Holy Spirit itself. Each member of the Heart’s Home family gathered that weekend continues to be just as much a sign for me of the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives.
This family reunion was like a breath of fresh air for me. It was a time to marvel at how far I’ve come, a reminder of how I can continue to grow and be inspired to live the charism of compassion more deeply, and a time to be thankful for each beautiful member of this family that has helped me in my own path toward holiness and helped spread compassion, literally, throughout the world.”
