I was born on 19 June 1982 and brought up on the island of Sumatra. The Catholic faith is a blessing in my life and my family. Receiving love and faithfulness is a wonderful experience, received from God through my family. When I joined a prayer group, I had experiences of visiting people who are materially very poor. This matched me with the spirituality of the Good Shepherd. I want to be able to share love and faithfulness with more people.
I professed my first vows on April 24, 2013. Working for the empowerment of women and children in East Nusa Tenggara, Ruteng is my first ministry experience. Flores Island where I work is very famous for its natural beauty.
However, the reality of life in this area is not beautiful at all, and needs to be told. I meet the children and wives of migrants, single mothers, and young children vulnerable to being trafficked. I meet victims of violence and injustice, and this is real. Destruction of nature can also be found on this beautiful island. Is my love enough?
Saint Mary Euphrasia taught me to have courage to love and serve. Love needs courage and readiness at all times. To meet and become a shepherd for those who are marginalized is a wonderful opportunity and a daring challenge to move from my comfort zone.
