The year was 1975 and life changed drastically for Peter, Rita, and Judy Perez. At the age of 25, Peter became ill with spinal meningitis and encephalitis which left him with extensive brain damage. Rita, only 24 at the time, was left to care for her sick husband and 3-month-old daughter during an age where being a single mom was not as common as it is today. Together, this family of three walked a journey that would last 32 years. Listen as for the first time in both their lives, Rita and Judy share their testimony and their own versions of God's faithfulness as wife, mother, and daughter. Listen as they share and encourage you that as you hang on to Hope & Faith, God gives you the Victory to be able to live out the story that He writes in your life!
