Juanita Guevara, Langley, BC

Hello, my name is Juanita Guevara. Thank you for being here today!

I was born in Colombia, and when I was 8 years old, I became a Canadian Citizen and now live in British Columbia. Although Colombia and Columbia have only a letter difference, the opportunities the Lord opened to me in Canada were huge.

I prefer spending my free time in activities such as going to lakes, baking or working out, and I strongly enjoy going to retreats because I get to connect with people who seek God in their lives and who pursue their time to nourish their spirit with the splendid reflections and activities provided. This year, before holy week started, I went to a one-day retreat. I had a message from God confirming NET was the path to take at this moment in my life. We were doing an activity where we had to choose a Bible verse from many Bible verses and I got John 15:16. I was called to join NET, and I am called as a Catholic to seek to be a saint as well. I want to be obedient to the will of God and to his work by being approachable and available to help as many people as I can. I am willing to allow the Lord to form me through NET and spread the word of God thanks to the opportunity that was offered to me.

Many young people lose their faith by the time they leave high school. NET sends teams of young adults to share their faith in schools and churches, so young people are transformed and re-engaged in their Catholic faith. If you feel called to be part of this mission by financially supporting this beautiful program and becoming a co-missionary, your generosity will be greatly appreciated. As Saint Therese of the Little Flower said,” Some give by going and others go by giving”. You can support NET’s mission by making a one-time or monthly donation. If you can make a monthly donation, NET encourages you to do so, since we try to accommodate your call to become a Co- missionary by donating in an approachable and achievable way. If you donate $50 or more, or donate monthly, besides becoming a co-missionary making this project possible, you will receive a NET newsletter and personal updates from the road throughout the year!

Thank you so much for your generosity.
God Bless,
Juanita Guevara
