Why SSJE: Donna Mayfield

Donna MayfieldI have been a member of your Fellowship for so many years now, and although I am unable to make my yearly pilgrimage to the monastery as I once did, I hold each of you in my prayers and consider myself so extraordinarily blessed to have so many dear brothers. I learned to really listen and pray within those hallowed walls, and when I felt most afraid, alone, depleted, and defeated, I could come ‘home’ to the Guesthouse where I always found open arms and God, ready to love me back together again. God bless you each and everyone. I pray someday to be able to visit you again.
