A Life to Live

When I gave birth to my daughter, Yanna, she had jaundice and her platelet count reached over one thousand—when the normal count is supposed to be just 450! The doctor said a stroke was possible. We stormed the heavens and held our breaths for the next 12 months as her condition only stabilized when she turned a year old. To this day, we still pray the Rosary two to three times a week, say the novena every Wednesday, and hear Mass on Sundays. We are so grateful to the good Lord for answering our prayers that we share our blessings with a cancer foundation here in Davao and also by sending milk to the children in Marawi.

–Jhoanna Ong-Valenzuela, 36


A Second Chance

I came to the Philippines to work against poverty here in the Philippines, but I wound up experiencing it firsthand because the people who were supposed to take care of me took advantage of me instead. This situation was compounded by a worsening condition in my right eye. I fell in with the wrong crowd of friends and began a downward spiral. But today, I have many things to be thankful for: a nice home, the healing of my eyes, and the chance to travel abroad. But most of all, I am grateful for the chance to forgive those who hurt me, and to be forgiven for my own faults. Now I can be free of my past and share His loving kindness with others.

–Robert Joseph Kleist, 36


Give Me a Sign

When my husband died, it felt like my life ended. We have no children, so he was my everything. My job in Iloilo paid so little I could barely get by. With my resources depleted due to my husband’s medical bills, I was at the very end of my rope and prayed to the Lord to give me a sign. That night, I dreamt I was on a journey carrying two heavy bags. A week later, an aunt offered me a job in Manila. Now I like my job, I’ve found new friends, and I’m able to send money home to my parents—with a little extra to pay for the upkeep of my husband’s grave.

–Ma. Fe Puchero
