Blanca, Beading Artisan
Blanca began working with Women of Hope on a seasonal basis from her home in 2012. Then in November 2015, she began working with us full time in our center. She and her husband decided she would work with us full time so that they could start building their own home versus living with his family.
She is a master beader, even at her young age, and excels at new and difficult design work. She has amazing skill and has developed her own technique and style that shows in the quality and unique designs of our Christmas balls and Hummingbird ornament. Her Christmas balls are the highest quality we have found in the region.
When we met Blanca, her first child Cruz was only 9 months old. When he started school she was able to work from our center full time. Late 2017 their second child, Pedro was born! Since Pedro's birth, Blanca has worked from home again, rather than in our center since we don't have childcare.
It has been a joy to work with her throughout the years and watch both Cruz and Pedro growing into delightful young boys, full of energy & love. The family pictures below are from late 2012 and most recently, Christmas 2018.
Pray that Blanca will continue to grow in the Lord and walk in faith and that her husband will come to know Christ as his Savior as well.
Blanca asks for prayer as she and her husband work to complete their home. Pray for consistent work for her husband. Please pray for their beautiful children to know the love and salvation of Jesus at a young age.
