“I needed help from a lawyer. It was a lot of money for me to hire a private lawyer on my own. My case was very sensitive because of a political asylum application. My wife basically tried to harm me because immigration sent us a notice to go to the interview. At that moment, she…

“Last October, I had a surgery, and I have been in a wheelchair since October of 2020. I had arterial blood clots and a seven and a half-hour surgery. I was relatively healthy before that. Found out I was diabetic, and in February, I had some heart problems, and they put two stents in. They…

“We came fleeing from a country that was already in ruins. We had had many political setbacks because my husband was a party leader. In 2016 and 2017, trying to get out of a dictatorship, he formed groups of neighbors. We would meet every night to find a way out. There was an invasion of…

“I was shot in my head by a stray bullet while sleeping at home back in September 2019, and of course, that has affected my job. I have been out of work for over two years because of the injury. I had my surgery in January 2020 to remove the bullet. It was a risk…

“I come on Tuesdays. I do the packing! We don’t see anyone. I am the ‘fruit division.’ I think of Christ and giving the first fruits. I was just looking to give back. I lost my husband a couple years ago, and I had all this time, and God has been so good to me…

Connie turned 100 last week, so we threw her a birthday party!   “This means a lot because I know they went through a lot of trouble. I didn’t expect anything like this. I used to attend events [hosted by Catholic Charities of Central Florida’s Senior Wellness Services], but I can’t anymore. It’s hard for…

“I saw a lot of families, and I think it’s always of a reminder of how pain is universally human. My pain is differently than these people’s, but they’re still in pain, and if I can do something to alleviate that, then I want to do it. Hunger is such a basic human thing—most people…

“I spent seven days sleeping in the jungle in Panama. It was very hard for me because I never went through this. I had to sleep on the floor with the ants biting my skin. You try to be calm because you cannot move. If you move, basically any animal can bite you—like a snake.…
