In the time that I have known Priscilla she has been an absolute delight to have on my team. She has followed through on her commitments and done so cheerfully. Her interpersonal skills are exactly what we need to engage guests and her beautiful demeanor is just what it takes for people to feel at ease with her. As a result, community has developed further and the long term potential of the organization has become close to reality.

I met Priscilla Raj a couple of years ago at Willow Creek church. At that time, I was a Section pastor. One of the goals of a Section leader it to recruit caring volunteers to help build a community. Priscilla joined the section and quickly offered to volunteer. Priscilla has a warm, friendly, lovely personality and she instantly connected with our International section. Her communication skills both written and verbal are excellent. She is definitely a multi-tasker with ability to connect. Priscilla was always enthusiastic to serve whatever capacity we needed her.
She quickly became a valued core member for our section. She was committed not only to our section yet she lended a helping hand to other sections. Priscilla has been instrumental to the success of the events for her section as well as other parts of the church.
As a person, she has a wonderful sense of adventure. She is smart, efficient, and competent. But, the thing that impresses me most about Priscilla is her deep faith and her love and commitment to God and his people in our church and all around the world. I highly recommend Priscilla for any position or endeavor she may seek to pursue. She will be a valuable asset in anything she chooses.

Priscilla and I met at an Alpha group where I was her helper at the table she led. From the start of our sessions, she was always very thoughtful of the Alpha guests concerns and current relationship with God. She led the group sessions with sincerity and respect. As sessions grew closer to difficult topics, she maintained a great relationship with everyone in the group. She is highly communicative and with me as her helper-she always gave me a chance to talk and provided me feedback, which I appreciated. I could see her eagerness to help others in their life journeys. She is definitely an asset to others and I am privileged to get to know her.

Our charity finds Priscilla to be a special person with great intention. Her work consisted of an inspirational program with our adult patients. It was her schedule to work with our patients in the afternoon and the kids in the morning-staying in another area separate from our unit.
It is important to note that our facility treats the poorest of the poor. Many of them have medical illness and sever disabilities. While they do have visits and activities with volunteers, we are limited with what we can do for them.
For our staff and sisters, it was interesting to see Priscilla work with our patients with great creative approaches. She had our patients engaged, listening, and speaking. There were many patients that were expected to not participate, but she seemed to have all patients engaged including our noncompliant ones. She incorporated Christ into her lessons in lovely ways. It was full effort she put into activity and structure of program teaching principles to our staff. She had a nice relationship with our staff and a desire to help their duties including food preparation and routine visits.
With her time, she participated in our mass and religious rituals with respect and commitment to Christ. She demonstrated dedication to being a Missionary spending her time in different countries. When asked why she was here, she simply said “To serve the charity of her role-model Mother Teresa.” Usually, our participants come from a specific congregation or with a group, but she came alone with a specific agenda. It is quite brave and admirable from our standpoint.
The schedule of the sisters and caretakers is quite busy and our attention is focused on their physical requirements. With Priscilla, we feel that we can now put forth more effort to patient’s being active and enjoying more. There is awareness on what patients can do and the depth of positive development. With her book she wrote, we can learn how to get them motivated and trying new activities. The inspirational readings and English singing together will be cherished. We hope she can come back and visit us again.
