I witnessed their unconditional and genuine love
A mum’s testimonial

by Theresa Garry, mother of a vol­un­teer in the Ukraine

“In October I was priv­i­leged to spend some time with my daughter Jennifer while she is on a mis­sion in Ukraine. We vis­ited the people she has gotten to know through her mis­sion work such as the elderly in the nursing home, the chil­dren in the orphanage, fam­i­lies who live out in the country, fam­i­lies who come to their home and spend time in prayer, share a meal together, or get help with their studies. They have also become friends with many very tal­ented art stu­dents living in L’viv. What an expe­ri­ence: to spend time with the friends they have made over the months and years is a tes­ti­mony to Heart’s Home and these vol­un­teers. The Heart’s Home vol­un­teers spend end­less hours praying for and bringing the face of God to their friends who are starving for someone, anyone to show them they are impor­tant and worth­while. I was moved as I wit­nessed the uncon­di­tional and gen­uine love they have for their friends. These vol­un­teers are very ded­i­cated to their call as mis­sion­aries for Heart’s Home, but of course they could not accom­plish this without our Lord, His Mother Mary, and prayer.

I felt the impact Heart’s Home has on the people of Ukraine, and I was honored to meet these friends who love my daughter so deeply. Are we not called to love everyone espe­cially those hardest to love? With the help of Gods grace Heart’s Home does this well. I could see that both the friends and mis­sion­aries are receiving much from what God has brought together. I would go back to Ukraine in a heart­beat, I have come to love the people of Ukraine and the people of Heart’s Home.

May Our Lord Jesus Christ con­tinue to unite the hearts of His people.”
