An alumni weekend took place from May 22 until May 24, gathering three former missionaries. Here is the testimony of one of them, Olivia who left 18 months in India with Heart’s Home.
I had such a wonderful time at the Heart’s Home in Brooklyn on Memorial Day weekend! I really felt at home in the community and was reminded again that I am part of the Heart’s Home family. It was so wonderful to meet other former missionaries who shared that they had many of the same expectations, difficulties and joys about their missions as myself.
I left New York reassured that I am not alone in trying to live the charism apart from the Heart’s Home but that I have support and that I am to begin building a new community. I am trying look at each of my friendships in the light of Christ and I am discovering where He is in my life each day.
