Natalia, Beading Artisan
Natalia’s journey is an incredible story that certainly testifies to God’s grace! Early one morning, she and her family awoke to the terrible roar of an approaching mudslide. As her husband Diego gathered their two children, the then-pregnant Natalia followed slowly as the family fled the home. Unfortunately, she was unable to exit before debris washed over the building.
She was trapped in the deluge of mud and rocks for several minutes before anyone realized she was missing. Her family members desperately rushed to her aid and were able to free her from the rubble. Within ten minutes of her rescue she went into labor and her son was delivered later that day! She and Diego are so grateful that God spared their lives amid the tragedy of the storm.
Natalia and her family now live in Chuk Muk, where her husband works as much as he can to earn about ten dollars a day. Natalia says her work with Women of Hope since 2012 has been an answer to prayer, because they can count on consistent income to help feed her four children and keep them in school. She is thankful to have an opportunity to help her husband provide for their family.
Natalia’s daughter, Jaquelin attends a private high school where she will be better prepared to one day be a teacher. Jaquelin & her parents are grateful for the educational sponsorship she has received through Women of Hope donors for the last few years. Jaquelin is a hard working student and loves learning!
Praising God for little Sarai born at the end of 2017! Please pray for Natalia as she continues to work, though from home, with two little ones 2 and under. Pray for the health of little Sarai, who has been sick lately. Please join us in praying for Natalia and Diego's marriage.
