More blessed to give than to receive – Gloria’s story

February 7, 2017

Gloria is a younger mother of two daughters. She has neither parents nor a husband. Before she got to know about Light and Love Home, she found life depressing, and felt lonely and helpless. After meeting us in 2012, Gloria said she rediscovered hope and love in her life. She had joined the sewing class under our women’s programme and learnt skills for her livelihood. And most importantly, she gained love and truth from a group of Light and Love Home volunteers. Hence she really wanted to do something for us in return, and started cleaning the Light and Love Home community centre on her own initiative. When we decided to formally recruit her as a Light and Love Home Volunteer, she was so grateful that she knelt and thanked us profusely. In the past few years, Gloria has helped clean and look after the community centre, and also in many other areas, such as the children’s after school programme, women’s programme, translation for local dialects, and representing Light and Love Home in caring for the elderly and liaising with the people in the township. Gloria provided so much help to Light and Love Home. We see her not just receiving benefits, but also trying her best to give in return. Her neighbours say she is a changed person, no longer always troubled and self-centred, but always joyful, generous and helpful. She also gives thanks that her life can experience what it means one is more blessed to give than to receive.
