It's been about two months since I first shared the news about my decision to answer the Lord’s call to grow in a more intimate relationship with He who is the Love of my soul and move forward in the vocational call to be a religious sister with the Marian Sisters of Santa Rosa.
My acceptance, however, was contingent upon one thing: raising the funds necessary to cover Type 1 Diabetes medical costs for the first three years. If, by the beginning of June, a good portion of goal was raised, showing God’s favor and desire of my vocation, I would be officially accepted and allowed to enter in August.
God must like a good challenge because $30,000 seemed like quite a lot to me. But quickly I learned I should have no doubts, because He would provide for me abundantly through YOU - His beloved people.
Never would I have imagined that in two months the goal would be nearly met, with less than $4,000 more to go!
I have no other words but THANK YOU! Thank you for responding to God’s call to charity. Thank you to everyone who has shared in this fundraising effort, but more importantly shared in this joyful occasion. Thank you even more for your prayers and support.
Because of each and every one of you, I have received my official acceptance letter and am set to enter the convent on August 5. I am overjoyed in knowing that I am one step closer to becoming a spouse of our Lord and laying down my life to serve Him and His Church.
