When I was a kid, I moved to the U.S. with my family, but I didn’t know how to speak English.
So, when my sister, Mariana, and I had to go to an American school for the first time we were scared. But we learned in the LOVES classes in Brazil and then in the U.S. to pray and to speak with our Guardian Angel. So, every time before going to school we talked with Jesus through a prayer and with our Guardian Angels, and that made us feel protected and happy.
It was a pleasure to be a Little Soldier of God and now a Legionnaire of Good Will.
