When I talk to nuns and priests overseas who spend their lives ministering to the poor, I often wonder what makes them tick.
I especially wondered that about Sr. Mary Peter. She runs St. Ann’s Home in Georgetown Guyana, which used to be a traditional orphanage for girls but is now a home mostly for wards of the state. And her wards come from very disturbing circumstances. They require a lot of patience, a lot of direction, and a lot of unconditional love.
So I popped the question, “What inspires you to keep going?” Her answer: “It’s what God wants, I enjoy it, and I have fun!”
When God handpicked Sr. Mary Peter for this special assignment, it’s obvious he knew what he was doing!
Sr. Mary Peter runs St. Ann’s Home in Georgetown Guyana, and she easily rises to every challenge her young charges present.
