Living in Krakow it has been amazing since we left Jerusalem. The Sisters in Krakow welcomed us with warm and open hearts and full of joy. Since we arrived in our community our sisters are doing their best in order to let us feel at home.
We are feeling their love and kindness in different ways for example: telling us if we need something just to ask them. Also they are interested about our own countries and they are open to understand us by showing how they can live easily with us even though there is a big gap of age between us.
Sister Ania and Sister Anne Denise have been living together in this community for ten years. The language that they use to communicate with each other is French but now because of us they changed from French to English in order to have a common language.
How do we see Poland? Well, we can say that Poland is a beautiful country and full of life especially the people that we have met who are so kind and friendly. It is a catholic country too. Since we arrived we go to the mass at the Dominic Church every Sunday and it is full of people. Most of the people go to mass as a family. It is interesting for us to see that most of the people are faithful to worship God. When we came to Poland we were so afraid because of the language and now we are not afraid anymore because most of the people speak English everywhere, in shops and the market too.
Sister Ania has a program for volunteers. She is helping young people who want to be volunteers outside of Poland for example: Israel, UK and Egypt. Here we met most of the volunteers who had been in places that we mentioned before and we are happy to meet them again.
„True charity gives all and exacts nothing for self: it loves without calculation, without looking for a return; it is generous, devoted, disinterested; it is happy when it is able to procure joy and consolation for others.” (4. 149)

At the beginning I was like Moses or Jonas who refused to go to mission. They had many excuses. I was like them, know I understand why I am here in Nicaragua. It is a reality completely different from where I have been.
When I arrived here in Managua Nicaragua , Sister Ana Maria was waiting for me at the main bus station. Then we went home where Angeles a volunteer was waiting for us. She is from Spain and is an Oculist.
It is my first time in the project “Generando Vida.” So I decided to get to know in each aspect of its program, the bank, the pharmacy, the special dining room and library and so on.
At the bank there are three hundred and eighty five business women associates. They welcomed me so kind and warmly. Then I moved to the kitchen and dining room where more than one hundred children and elderly people take their lunch from Monday to Friday. I had the opportunity to share with some of the elderly people their happiness in the proyect. I can say that the Gospel is made for the humble because most of these are so grateful for their food they receive. I did this for a couple of weeks…
