Magareth: Past, Present, and Future

Posted: June 24, 2013 in Uncategorized

Several months ago I posted three blogs about a woman named Magareth, whom we have known for several years.  She had come to our gate and with her youngest child standing right next to her asked if we would find an orphanage for the little girl.  I wrote about how I felt at that moment as I looked into the face of this young girl whose mothers had just asked if we could find an orphanage to put her in.

I as well wrote about our efforts to find an answer other than separating this mother and daughter and finally I wrote of how you helped Magareth and her daughter and her other children get out of the tent in which they were living and into a small house.

Magareth Graduates from Literacy One

On June 14th the Heartline Women’s Center celebrated its graduation with almost 100 ladies graduating in areas of sewing, craft making, cooking, and literacy.  While I rejoiced with each graduate, I must admit that I found the most joy when Magareth walked across the stage to receive her diploma as a graduate of Literacy One.  This was the first diploma that Magareth has ever received.  Image

The plan is for Magareth to return this year for Literacy Two which is heavy on math, and then for her, the next year, to take the entrance exam for our sewing school.  She worked hard, faithfully came and earned her diploma. We are proud of her. We will continue to help her with housing as we look to helping her become self sufficient. We could not have done this without your support and we want you to know that your support matters and is making a difference.

Registration for next Women’s Center school year

Today several dozen ladies  came for the first day of registration for the upcoming Women’s Center school year.  I expect that about 500 ladies will vie for the 100 spots.  I am asking God for more like Magareth that we can  love, encourage, support, instruct, and demonstrate God’s grace.

Thank you for making a difference here in Haiti.

    It’s absolutely beautiful to see what God can do. This story is full of hope for Margareth and hope for her family. But is also is a clear demonstration of the hands and feet of Jesus working. This is love, right here.
