Living a Gospel centered life as a Dominican sister I find myself working with women and men struggling to integrate into the community by learning English and then passing a civics test to become a US citizen. I am honored to accompany them as they struggle to learn new vocabulary and a new history.  Martha told me in English class she wants to learn enough to start her own daycare; I am so proud of her. She is married and not able to bear children so she wants a daycare to care for the children of others. This is her dream, a goal, she plans to realize and she has taken progressive steps toward this.

What are your dreams and plans to reach your dream? My dream is to be a faithful companion and help to empower women and men to meet their goals of integration into US society. Regular prayer sustains me in this ministry.
