Her husband left her for another woman when Nellie was eight months pregnant. She thought drinking wine everyday with her friends would help her forget everything that happened. Nellie received help from a nearby church and from Women of Hope Ilocano programs (support Ilocano programs).

PHILIPPINES, a personal visit.

“Your program gave me hope and encouragement to go on.  Without Women of Hope I don’t know what would happen to me and I don’t know where I would be. Your encouraging text messages are also a great help to me. I am sending them to my children. One thing that affirms me that my situation is far more blessed is the prayer calendar you are sending.  I told myself, my problem is too small compared to those women suffering mentioned in the prayer calendar.  I am also sharing the prayer calendars to my children.

I want my children to get closer to God, and by listening to your programs I believe that they are knowing the Lord as their personal Savior. My children are recording your programs in their cellphones and they are listening to it during bed time."
