Peter S. - Argentina 2011-2013

“Truly I tell you, just as you did it to the least of these, who are mem­bers of my family, you did it to me.” –Matt 25:40

“Beloved, you do faith­fully what­ever you do for the friends, even though they are strangers to you; they have tes­ti­fied to your love before the church. You will do well send them on in a manner worthy of God; for they begin their journey for the sake of Christ….Therefore we ought to sup­port such people, so that we may become co-workers with the truth.” -3 John 5-8

My name is Peter and I am from Hamburg, New York. This June I will finish a mas­ters degree in Theology from the University of St. Michael’s College (Toronto, ON, Canada). After a 4 year degree from St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY and this 2 year mas­ters, God has let me know that it is time to put all that con­tem­pla­tion into action. I began my online search for orga­ni­za­tions in December 2010 and came across Heart’s Home in January 2011. Just one viewing their video and a quick search through their web­site was enough to let me know that I had found my match. Their ded­i­ca­tion to com­pas­sion-cen­tered outreach to the marginal­ized is work that the world needs. I have been very priv­i­leged in my life up to this point. Such priv­i­lege can be cred­ited to the hard work of my family before me and the con­stant grace of God who has no doubt been at work through all of it. Upon reflecting on my sit­u­a­tion, it has become obvious that the only response to such bless­ings is thanks­giving through ser­vice to the poor. Hearts Home allows me to offer that thanks to God and to be priv­i­leged in a new way, seeing His face in those I will be helping.

I will be leaving for Buenos Aires, Argentina in August. I am thrilled to have such an oppor­tu­nity.
