Myra, Beading Artisan
Myra joined Women of Hope as a seamstress and bead artisan in January 2014. She is a talented craftswoman and has quickly learned how to bead. She lives in San Lucas with her son, who attends elementary school in the mornings and stays with his grandmother in the afternoons until Myra finishes work.
Women of Hope gives Myra an opportunity to provide a better life for her son, as she works & attends school on the weekends. In January 2017 she will begin 10th grade and has dreams to one day attend university.
Having been abandoned by an abusive husband, who died in late 2014, Myra and her son made their way together these last couple of years. However, by God's grace, Myra's has other big plans as she enters 2017! She is marrying on December 17th 2016! Her new husband is encouraging her to continue her work at Women of Hope and to continue school. They are planning to begin building a home together which require them to watch closely their budget even with both working.
We hope to find a partner to help with the cost of her school expenses again for 2017. Myra attends a private high school, which provides a better education, though costs quite a bit more than public. For a little more than $43 a month, her monthly registration, books, supplies and projects can be covered. Will you consider joining in her educational pursuit and make a lasting difference in her family's life?
We are asking for prayers as she begins this next season of her journey as a new wife. We pray for her son during this transition, that the love and acceptance of his step father will make a huge difference in his life too. Please join us in asking the Lord to give her endurance and strength in all that she does, being a wife and mother, working and attending school.
Here is recent video, from November 2016, as Myra shares her gratitude for the educational sponsorship she received in 2016 and as she looks forward to attending high school in 2017.
