BLESSED JOURNEY

by Meena, Graduate of Sophia’s Home, Nepal. Currently, she is working in Cyprus.


I was born in a remote village in Nepal where there was no adequate educational facility. So, I had to move to town for a better education. As our standard of living was low, my very poor parents could not afford to let me continue to stay in school. They had to search for a place to keep me and eventually, they found "Sophia's Home".


My journey with Sophia’s Home began in 2002 when I was just seven years old. I was a little kid who knew nothing; everything was new to me. New parents, new sisters, new house, and many more. And for the first few days, it was really difficult to adjust. However, as time went by, I felt more comfortable with Sophia’s Home as my home, and this is my big family. Uncle Saba and Aunty Grace made me feel like I was their own. I was raised in a beautiful way so that I could learn a lot. I had the opportunity to go to good school and college and eat good foods. And most importantly, I could learn more about Jesus. Knowing Jesus and getting to grow up in a Christian family were the most amazing things that ever happened in my life. I also got many opportunities to serve in the children’s ministry and church worship services at a very young age.


I spent almost 13 years at Sophia's Home. I am beyond grateful to call this place my home. Sophia's Home has been a big part of my life, and I learnt countless things during my stay there with all my other sisters with whom I grew up together. Everything I am today is because of this place. It has taught me to stand on my own two feet, and to be strong and courageous. Sadly, I had to say goodbye to Sophia's Home when I finished Grade 12 and graduated in 2013.


Another chapter of my life began when I left Sophia's Home. Then, I had to do everything on my own. I started my new job as a teacher in a Montessori school. I shared rooms with my friends. We stayed together as a family. Life went on but I was not sure what to do next. After almost seven years, I decided to work in Cyprus. Leaving a familiar homeland to go to a foreign land was not easy for me. However, God has been so good to me through thick and thin, and I become closer to God. I can sense God's promise for me from Luke 1:37: "For nothing is impossible with God." I see God turning my impossibilities to possibilities when I am in Cyprus. Ever since I am here, I learn to pray more, believe more, trust more, and depend more on God. Now, my life has been so blessed. I am grateful that God has provided me with what I have prayed for. I also found a church here in Cyprus, where I am given the opportunities to serve in the children’s ministry and church activities. I believe God has more in store for me for His work in the coming days because I feel God has made me for a mission.



Now, as I look back, I feel blessed for all the wonderful journeys that I have walked through. God has been guiding my footsteps from a little kid to a teenager to an adult.
