WYD has changed my life and helped me see just how great God’s Love is, through the people who want to encounter Him each day. My experience at WYD Krakow began when I met the family who hosted me, who cared for me as if they were my own parents. I witnessed the joyful youth at all the events who, despite being tired, hungry, had walked for several hours, been under the rain, still praised Christ out loud.
From that moment I decided to go to another WYD, and luckily during the last mass I found out about the next one happening in Panama. I cried with happiness and even lost my phone in the commotion. I have now gone full in to being part of the logistics of this event, and taking my testimony for other young people to want to be part of this. It has not been easy, however, not impossible. God has always been with me during the journey and I know that He will continue. I am grateful for all the opportunities He has given me. I know that in January 2019 I will have plenty of memories to share.
