STREET PROVIDENCE TRUST GOA brings smiles and motivation back into the life of Bernard ,
A Goan man .
A man in total depression and in the dark, now set free .
Late Nov 2019 , Bernard was admitted into our home in a very sad state.
He was in a total mess and blurred vision in both eyes due to cataract.
A big nuisance in his village as he would just loitering in dirt and sleeping on the road or bus stops .
Very adamant man , highly stubborn and too violent .
He just could not control his toilet movements and would moan , groan , mutter , abuse , etc .
He basically I feel had lost his mind .
It took us almost a month to realise that he was unable to see due to cataract.
Bernard motivation level was very low .
He understood and believed that nothing good can come from him.
Too compound this belief of his , the care givers were getting stressed, bathing and cleaning him daily.
Infact we had to shift Bernard to a different home every 15 days so that the care givers would not get stressed & upset with him .
Thanks to a senior citizen from our Margao Food Bank , Mr Rubio who took Bernard many many times to Dr Ryan to check his eyes and be prepared for the operation.
We managed to get 1 eye of Bernard operated FREE OF COST by Dr Ryan at Margao.
After a few weeks Bernard was at ease.
He started responding to the care giver request to use the toilet and started having bath by himself.
One thing I observed that which house Bernard stayed, he would listen to the CD being played and follow it .
♡ In All our homes the WORD / DEVOTIONAL SONGS / RETREATS are played 24 hours which is preached by BJ ♡
This 24 hours non stop Word of God is the best way to beat depression and sickness.
Today we present you :
▪︎1. A picture of Bernard when we admitted him into our home 9 months ago.
▪︎2. A 5 minute video taken 3 days ago in KONKANI which will explain his current confidence level .
▪︎3. The same video where Bernard is singing and tapping together an Alfred Rose song after 4 min of play time.
