WORDS FROM SISTER NORMA
Happy New Year 2019 from Metanoia Manor,
As we celebrate the most wonderful time of year, and the most awesome event in human history, the coming of God to earth as a little child in the manger, we come to you to celebrate. As we celebrate Christ’s birthday, we want to wish you God’s blessings for the care you have given to Metanoia Manor. Without your help, we could not provide the much needed comfort to our young girls.
Metanoia Manor has been fully operational since February 2018 with the arrival of our first resident. The stories of our girls in the hands of traffickers are vicious and cruel. The girls’ tears have no limit. The wounds are fresh. The scars, ever-present. Only God can heal them completely. Please pray for the girls and for us so we may have wisdom and strength.
The trauma therapy, substance abuse, group therapy, individual counseling, psychological help, medications, spiritual assistance, and doctor visits are some of the ways the girls are beginning to heal. Afternoons are dedicated to home schooling; so that when our residents leave Metanoia, they can move forward in society. Weekends bring time for fun outings and recreation just like other conventional teens.
Thank you for every penny spent, your valuable time, your energy, your talents shared, food cooked and the many other donations towards Metanoia. “Whatever you do for the least of these children, you have done unto me.” Mt 25:40. Let us join hand-in-hand to help save so many young girls.
May your heart be filled with joy, peace, and love which are the real blessings that Christmas brings. May you receive the gift of faith and the blessings of hope, and may all your Christmas dreams come true. May the brightness of the star of that silent and holy night illuminate your life with the love that the new born Christ brings. Wishing you a bright, beautiful, joyful Christmas and a wonderful New Year full of God’s favor and blessings.
Thank you and Happy New Year,
Sister Norma Nunez
