Mariana, 75 years old from Tirana:
"I was 40 years old when I became blind. After this happened my husband left me, because he wanted a wife that could see. Raising my children was very difficult and I had to make many sacrifices. Today my children are all married and have immigrated to other countries.
Even though I am on my own now, I never feel alone. I always have God and the radio programs with me. I stay almost the whole day at home in order to listen to your radio programs. Your TTB programs especially, have been a tremendous encouragement to me.
I accepted Jesus into my heart 15 years ago. Since then, your programs have helped me get to know Jesus better. My life alone is not easy, but I am thankful to the Lord for the church and the sisters that help me.
There are days when I have the opportunity to share the Gospel with other older ladies who do not know God. I share with them about the great love of Christ and the teachings I have heard from the radio. Truly, there is no greater joy than to share God's love with others.
Thank you so much for everything. The radio programs are a great help for me and a great friend.”
