Marcy was hesitant to talk to us.Once she heard Fr John was a Priest she broke down in tears and he took her aside to talk and pray with her. Meanwhile the little girl was estatic and tried out her new bike with a helmet included. We also gave them a very small Christmas tree with decorations,a doll and some make up and clothes for both. Fr John left her with some pamphlets about getting
through difficult times, about faith and also about self esteem.A year went bye before we received an email from the woman who originally told us about Marcy.Seems as if the woman and Marcy moved into an apartment together.The woman had a job now and said things could not be better.Finally Marcy was at peace after learning her xboyfriend was in prison for an unrelated incident.And he would not be getting out for along time.The little girl rides her bike daily and they both started church.Fr John smiled ear to ear when I had read him the email.He said 'never under estimate the power of faith and prayer:.Of course knowing someone cared enough to reach out to them I am sure helped.
