One of the best moments of the day was when one of our members brought up her son Jimmy to meet Sr. Oresoa. They exchanged greetings, Mary introduced herself and then said that Jimmy had a question for Sister. I was intrigued; a question from an adolescent boy who is just meeting a nun from Africa for the first time... this could be, well, who knows what this is going to be. He sheepishly looked up at her and said, "Hi Sister. How is Daniel?"
Sr. Oresoa was amazed that he knew Daniel and that he had the compassion to ask about him. Daniel is one of the orphans at Anawim Home. Jimmy had remembered him from last year's Advent Conspiracy when his family spent less on Christmas gifts and instead gave the gift of water to their community in Nigeria.
It was an awesome moment... And I can't wait for another Advent Conspiracy this year!
