Walking with God – Helen (1)

Helen is a fervent catholic. She studied in Catholic school, but was only baptized 22 years ago. The night when she was baptized, her husband died of lung cancer at the age of 46. The next day, her 10 year-old son told her he saw his father gone to heaven in his dream. Two months later during Mass, she heard the Holy Spirit talk to her, saying that God loves her so much and wants to give her a chance to be a good mother, bringing up her two kids. She went through a lot of difficulties, but with the help of God and Our Lady, she learned how to communicate with others, to forgive, and be a good Catholic, so that people can see the presence of God.

Walking with God – Teresa (2)

Teresa grew up in a grass root family. She studied hotel management when she was in university. After emigrating to Canada, her mother opened a beauty institute. At that time she was already married. Hoping to have babies, she joined her mum's business in order to have more flexible working hours for her family. It has been almost 28 years now. She always pray that God will give her wisdom to know every step in her life. She feels that Our Lady accompanies her daily, and she thanks God and Our Lady for everything she has. She learned how to pray short verses whole heartedly, which is very useful. You may not get what you want, but God will have other arrangements for you. Through her business, she gets in touch with many people with whom she share her faith, which is good for evangelization.
