New to Women of Hope Guatemala since July 2017. Please pray that Clara continues to learn beading from Maria and the other artisans. Pray especially for her as she had to testify recently against her abuser and this has brought up many issues again in her life; pray for her heart to continue to heal from this trauma and learn more about God's love for her.
Rosa began with us in July, coming from the children's home. She has several disabilities that limit her ability to learn the art of beading. She has tried and our other artisans have worked diligently with her, however we are seeing that this work isn't the right one for her. We are preparing for her to transition back to the children's home to work to help clean in their private school and to help at the home caring for young children. Please pray that she continues to grow in her relationship with the Lord and finds joy in her new work.
