Daysi Simbana is a Disability Advocate for La Senda Del Amor (RCA), Toronto.
“Our love for God starts by showing love to our brothers and sisters,” Daysi shares on how she felt called to serve as a disability advocate in her church.
Although her church is not physically accessible, the congregation is committed to better equipping themselves to minister with people with disabilities, giving them all the love and support they need, and make them feel they are in the best place. Daysi says, “Since we do not have sufficient funds to change the building, we want to find other ways to help and support families so that they feel loved and appreciated.” Listen to Daysi share in her own words and in her language of Spanish (English captions available).
