Meet a Sister

Sister Nida Fe Chavez Sister Nida Fe Chavez
When I fell in love with God, I also fell in love with the people around me and all God’s creation.

My roots are in Manila, Philippines, where I grew up with my younger Sister and three brothers. Both my parents originated in Cuenca, Batangas, and it was there that I enjoyed school breaks with my grandparents, relatives and cousins who lived at the foot of a mountain.
