Meet Marta, a single mom to one son.
A year ago, she was struggling to make ends meet. Selling food on the streets was her only way to make a living.
But this all changed.
This month marks one year that she has been with Diaconia, our local partner in Paraguay.
“A year ago I was struggling to make ends meet," shares Marta. "I was living in a constant deep sadness due to the passing away of my father who had always been such a support.
I heard of Diaconia and joined.
Before I knew it, I was cooking and selling meals from home on a consistent basis and making really good money with it.
Today, I don’t have to go out on the streets anymore to sell food.
Through the chaplain that visits my Trust Group, I was able to hear about God's love for me. Today, I am free from the sadness that had overtaken my life,” shares Marta, “I have been blessed above and beyond what I hoped for. God has been good to me!”
With tears of joy, Marta thanked Diaconia for creating an opportunity for her to have a better life, meet Jesus and for being a catalyst of change in her life.
Proudly Marta showed others how the walls were going up in her new home. As she expressed: ”I have been blessed above and beyond what I hoped for. God has been good to me! Thank you Diaconia!”
