As a result, Fiorella’s attitude has shifted from being an angry, explosive, turbulent person to being a person with a lot of joy. And she’s constantly smiling.
“It’s also really exciting, to see Fiorella sharing her faith with her family and friends,” Nathaly says. “They see she has a genuine relationship with God.” She further notes, “Fiorella always wants to do the right thing. She is constantly thinking about how other people are meeting God.”
“I know that God is like a potter. He knows how to mould my character in the middle of all of this. He will shape my life so that I can learn patience.”
Becky was quick to agree. “We were just walking down the street to get some water for me,” Becky said, “and Fiorella bumped into two Law friends. She’s like, ‘You have to meet my friend Becky; she is from Canada and she shared her faith with me and now I’m a Christian. We’re having a meeting right now; you should totally come!’”
“Afterwards I asked her: ‘Are they Christians?’ And she replied, ‘No, they’re not.’“
“Fiorella is just really open about her faith. It is so cool seeing that,” Becky adds.
Recognizing that having other Christians around her has helped her continue to grow in her faith, Fiorella makes a point of discipling others in her church. This has brought her purpose and joy. She can hardly keep up with her words as she passionately expresses what she shares with others. “One thing I always say to those I disciple is we have a God of love, who is always going to forgive our imperfections, our sins. We might make mistakes, but he will always be there for us.”
“You never know what can change the life of a person, or a community’s life.” Fiorella says, “When someone sees how Christ has changed a life, it inspires them.”
