Quotes from clients
Before I came to SLW- I was suffering and anxious for many years and hated my life. There were many nights where I didn’t eat nor drink. I came from a very poor-poor family.
Now- I have learned and gained many things. I have never been this happy in my life. I praise and thank God. God bless you!
Before I came to SLW- I was very anxious.
Now- my life has changed. I am thankful for all of you. I love you.
Before I came to SLW- I went through many place. I went to school when I was 10 years old. I have been through many things. I was raped many times. I used to drink alcohol so many times.
Now- I have a good community of women. I have learned to pray and even read the Bible. Even if I died right now, I am beyond happy because my life has changed. I love you all!
Before I came to SLW- I never heard about community living. I hated my work and hated my life.
Now- I have many strong women I can cry on their shoulders. I am also learning my dream job- to become a fashion designer!
Before I came to SLW- it was a life of misery. I was the older daughter. I graduated from nursing school- but couldn’t find any job. Therefore, I had to do everything I could to find a job. Depression, anxiety and everything in between ruined my life. I was extremely bullied. I started to question God and everything I depended on.
Now- the first time I came here. I have become so joyful. I was able to sleep well at night.
My life is dependent on God. It’s okay to wait on God for everything . I don’t have any depression. I am full of peace now. God is faithful. I am very happy now!
Before I came to SLW- my life was miserable. My dad is blind and doesn’t have any food to eat. The community would call me a thief. I was alone. I was highly bullied. We were the poorest of the poor. I dropped out of the 5th grade. I was told that I will never amount to anything.
Now- My life has changed. I became a Christ follower. My prayer life has changed. I am totally a new person. I have a community of believers here- I have a warrior of women who follow Christ. My Dad is now very proud of me. I am changed forever. I used to hear and listen to secular songs and hated everything about Christianity. Now- without Jesus Christ- I can’t live. I am currently learning fashion design, leather and culinary. I never thought I would ever qualify for anything in life. God changed my life. God has a big vision for my life. God will use me to change the next generation. I now learned that I am a good person. I am not evil. I am not dirty. I am qualified. My parents are so happy for me!
Thank you Springs of Living Water. I love you all so much. I don’t have enough words for you all. May God bless you and make you as joyful and happy. I am so happy for this my life! Thank you!!!!
