Hello! My name is Sadete Skenderi. I am 52 years old and my birthday is on January 9th. I am doing well and enjoy good health. My husband was working in Macedonia to provide a bit more for our family. He was hired there from a company that does maintenance on roads. He was able to go there and return within the day and we were so blessed that he was benefiting well for us. But one day, he went to work and never came back. A wall aside the road they were building felt and he got killed. That was a shock for my two children and for me. The loss was great and the pain was so big. This happened before three years and six months and from that time on, I am left with less support and feel the financial pressure to supply all the needs of my children and my own. I used to be a teacher with profession and worked for a short while. After quitting that job, I got blessed to work at the feeding programme of Kotodesh for many years. I was serving there the food to the children who came to enjoy the cooked meals. Being part of this ministry, I have taken the responsibility to serve to the Lord at the Bible study we had with the ladies of the church and was also serving to them coffee at the fellowship time. Actually, I am attending the church services and the ladies meetings regularly.
Our family contains 3 persons and we all live in an old house that doesn’t offer appropriated living conditions. On spring we plated the vegetable garden and we provided for consumption beans, tomatoes, peppers, anions, etc. Around our land and garden we have also got a few fruit trees and we have started to gather the apples, pears and plums to make jam or composts. We preserve them in jars so that we can consume them during the winter. We don’t plant a lot in our land. I have decided to keep no animals because it takes lots effort to care for them and during the winter they need a lot of food provision. Same as all the widows and the people of the village of Kotodesh, I face hardships financially and am very thankful to the Adopt a Child sponsorship program and to the church in Kotodesh for their help. I have received every month a food beg containing groceries as oil, flour, rice, sugar, pasta, washing detergents, etc. I am thankful to you for your support and care. God bless you!
