Veronica, Beading Artisan
Veronica started with us in April 2015 to help us with a specific order. She quickly became part of our team and is learning many new beading techniques she had not previously used. Veronica is a valuable asset to our group!
Her family background is an all too common one. Her father was an alcoholic who abused her mother and for many years didn't provide for the family. Her mother raised Veronica and her older brothers as best she could with little help from their father. Veronica wanted to attend school so badly that her mother took out loans to cover the cost. Veronica successfully completed high school and thanks to the Lord for a sponsor, she is attending university, studying law in a weekend program. Her father has changed and her family is in a much better place.
We are grateful for the donors who sponsor her university studies. Veronica is growing in so many different areas with the experience of her continued education. Veronica's leadership skills have made her an invaluable asset to Tina as her assistant. She helps with overseeing the work of the other artisans and assists Tina in the daily beading activities of the center. Our hopes are that one day in the future she will be the director of Women of Hope Guatemala!
Join us in praying for Veronica’s family, especially her mother who continues to work in the market 7 days a week to provide for her family. We are also asking God to continue providing sponsorship for Veronica to attend University while she works with us. Pray for Veronica's relationships with each of the other artisans as she encourages and challenges them in their relationship with Christ.
Here are a few past videos of Veronica sharing about her desire to continue to study in University.
