Sister Zelzy, Sponsor a Sister

Sponsor Sr. Zelzy

I am Sister Zelzy and I am a Mother Sister here at Girlstown, Villa de los Niños, in Chalco, Mexico. I am originally from the State of Guerrero. I was fortunate to study 5 years as a student in the Villa de los Niños, here in Chalco, Mexico so I can easily relate to the girls. I have been serving the poor for 6 years as a Sister of Mary. I come from a financially unstable family, but I was never lacking in maternal affection.

From home, the seed of Faith was sown in my heart and it was strengthened through the teachings of the sisters of Mary where my vocation to religious life germinated. I express my love to God every day through my prayer and direct service to the girls.

I consider each soul a precious pearl in my hands, which the good Lord gives me for your knowledge.

The greatest challenge for me is to penetrate the teaching into each heart, to make it germinate, remain, strengthen and always bear fruit in abundance for society.
