From the Gospel according to Matthew 13:44-46
The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field; a man finds it, hides it again, and full of joy, sells everything he has and buys the field. The Kingdom of Heaven is also like a merchant who was looking for fine pearls; and when he found one of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it.

PHC /SASMAD volunteer, Jessie, tells her story about taking the basic formation and the experiences that she has had accompanying others.

Listen to our volunteers… 
On the occasion of our 30th anniversary, the SASMAD team has prepared a series of videos in which our volunteers express their testimony and the fruits of their spiritual accompaniment for our beneficiaries.
You will find the videos all over our website wherever you see our 30th anniversary pearls.
Enjoy watching them!
