This Is What Going To Church With Your Latino Family Looks Like, Summed Up In 11 Personalities

In addition to the same prayers, sermons and songs you hear at church, another thing that starts to become a pattern is the type of people you see at church.

Whether you’re a regular churchgoer or not, there are certain types of people you’ll be able to spot every time you’re there, like that one person who you know is slightly hungover.

You can smell the alcohol still oozing out of their pores.

On the flipside, there’s always that one prima who shows up as if she’s on her way to walk down a red carpet.

She shows up in 4-inch heels, with her hair done, nails done, and so much highlight she looks like some kind of spiritual being herself.

There’s also that one person who can’t stay awake to save their soul.

Some try to play it off as if they’re praying.

And if it’s not someone’s loud snores making you giggle, it’s someone’s tripas grumbling super loud.

I’m totally that person that thinks about nothing but food and about which restaurant I’ll be hitting up after church.

There’s also that one señora who likes to show off how much money she donates to the church.

Mostly to make others feel guilty.

But the rapper señora who prays at 800 wpm while you’re barely on the fourth word of the prayer takes the cake.

Padre Nuestro Eminem! Jajaja

Not even the priest can keep up with this woman.

You also encounter that one person who sings to every song wayyyy too loud and wayyy off pitch.

They also clap along to the songs completely off beat.

And when it’s time to shake everyone’s hand during mass, you always try to avoid that one person whose palms are sweatier than your tío in a sauna.

The second you shake this person’s hand, you feel about a gallon of sweat glide onto your hand.

Another person you don’t want to be sitting next to at church is that one stinky person who smells worse than a pedo in a school bus.

Being near this person’s morning breath is not cute.

But what’s worse, foul smells or dealing with the tantrums of kids crying during the service?

From the corner of your eye, you catch this child’s mom pinching them and trying to get them under control without causing a scene.

Even after the service has come to an end, there’s still one more person you’ll have to face… Your mom talking to her church comadres for at least another half hour after mass.

And it’s best if you don’t even bother asking her when you’re leaving because that will just annoy her and make her want to carry on the conversation even longer.

4-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Hung Herself While Climbing A Tree

4-Year-Old Girl Accidentally Hung Herself While Climbing A Tree

A mother living in the United Kingdom is enduring a “hellstorm of grief” following the tragic death of her 4-year-old daughter. Just days after welcoming her twin daughters, Elise Thorpe was forced to learn of her daughter Freya’s shocking death after she climbed a tree near her home in Upper Heyford, Oxfordshire.

Just before her death, Freya was wearing a bicycle helmet when she went for her tree clim.

Freya slipped and began to fall off of the tree when her helmet strap caught on to a branch.

Elisa Thorpe is speaking out about the incident which took place in September 2019 despite efforts to resuscitate her daughter by emergency responders. According to Yahoo, “An inquest into her death in January 2020 ruled that she ‘potentially slipped’ and her helmet caught on a branch, causing the helmet strap to become ‘tight against her throat.’ She died in hospital two days later.”

Speaking about the incident Elise told The Sun “We live every day and night in hell, torture, sheer shock, and grief that can’t be comprehended.”

Elise told South West News Service that she and her husband “were on cloud nine after the long-awaited arrival and difficult pregnancy” of their twins Kiera and Zack. Speaking about the grief she experienced, Elise said that she would have taken her own life had it not been for the birth of her children.

Recalling the day of Freya’s death, Elise explained that her little girl had gone for a playdate.

“In the early afternoon, Daddy had to go off to collect the special milk from Boots pharmacy in Cowley for the twins, as they were allergic to cow’s milk,” Elise Thorpe explained about how her daughter had been invited to play at a house just a 10-second walk away.

Freya had gone outside without her mother knowing.

“I had a gut feeling I wanted her home. Shortly after, I saw an ambulance at the end of the road – I panicked, at the time not knowing why I was panicking,” Elise told SWNS. “I called my husband to say I was going to get her back from the house behind. He said, ‘No, I’m five minutes away, stay with the babies.’”

“I saw his car go past and not return from the little cul-de-sac. I knew something was wrong,” she went onto explain. After spotting her husband speaking with a firefighter, Elise “grabbed the twins and rushed to a cordoned area where she saw first responders working desperately on Freya.”

After two days of waiting at John Radcliffe Hospital, the Thorpe family learned Freya could not be saved.

“I never stepped foot inside my home again. This is something I also lost and miss to this day — my home,” Elise went onto say. “Had I not given birth only 10 days before we would have taken our lives in the hospital that night, without a shadow of a doubt… We have had so much support over the last 18 months and we can’t tell you all how much that’s helped us through and for that I can never thank everyone enough for the support, kind words and donations – even from those we’ve never met.”

“But we’ve also experienced scrutiny and abuse from people who’ve asked, ‘Where were the parents? How could they let her out alone?’” she added sadly. “It has caused family rifts from relatives and judgment all because people didn’t know Freya wasn’t in our care when this happened.”

This Migrant Mother Spent Three Years In Church Sanctuary But Now She’s Free

This Migrant Mother Spent Three Years In Church Sanctuary But Now She’s Free

Lawyers are working hard to get a deportation order removed against a woman who just left a church sanctuary after three years in the refuge. Although she was previously denied asylum in the U.S., advocates are hoping that under new direction from the Biden administration, her case will be reviewed and she’ll be able to stay with her family in Ohio – where she’s lived for more than twenty years.

A mother of three is back with her family after living three years inside a church.

A mother of three who sought refugee inside an Ohio church from immigration authorities has finally been able to leave three years later. Edith Espinal, who herself is an immigrant rights advocate, had been living at the Columbus Mennonite Church since October 2017 to avoid being deported to Mexico. She’s now out of the church and back with her family following a meeting with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials, who have agreed that she’s not an immediate priority for deportation.

“Finally, I can go home,” Espinal told reporters after meeting with the officials. With tears of relief, she celebrated the small victory in the presence of dozens of supporters who accompanied her to the ICE building.

“But it is not the end of her case. We’re still going to have to fight,” her attorney Lizbeth Mateo said.

ICE has agreed to hold off on her deportation proceedings pending her asylum request.

Espinal was released under an order of supervision, meaning that while she’s not considered an immediate priority for deportation, she must periodically check in with ICE officials to inform them about her whereabouts.

She has lived in Columbus for more than two decades and had previously applied for asylum, citing rising violence in her home state of Michoacán. But she eventually was ordered to leave the country, which is when she sought refuge inside the Columbus, Ohio church.

“We’re going to continue pressing the Biden administration to do the right thing, and try to get rid of that order of deportation against Edith, so she can walk freely like everyone else does without fear,” Mateo said during the press conference.
