Young men and women follow father Jordan, living by the Gospel and being witnesses of Christ on earth

FJY diary

FJY. Carlo.


 

I could fully say that Fr. Jordan and I are similar in one way or another. But what could it be?

 

When I was a young boy, I was naughty! I used to fight with my brothers, sisters, classmates, and playmates, but I had a lot of friends. As I grew older, I changed, I turned into a reserved teenager, I avoided fighting and I stopped talking about senseless things.

 

I belong to a big family. I am the seventh child and I still have younger siblings. Due to some financial difficulties, my mother cannot send all of us to school because she doesn’t earn much. My father died more than a year ago and my older siblings are already married and attend to their own families.

 

I was not able to go to college this school year, but I don’t have any intention to give up. I will find ways so I can go, perhaps in the year after.

 

My life may not be that colorful or interesting at all, but “FJY” transformed it. When I started to join this organization, I have learned a lot of things, and had new friends. In this group, we all help each other to be closer to God.

 

I am a proud of FJY and I am delighted to be a part of this group!
