I want to share a bit about a dear lady.  Her name is Xiomara.  We hired Xiomara about a month ago to help with the housecleaning, clothes washing, etc.  She comes at 7:30 am and works until 3 pm.  From day one she has served here with dedication and integrity.  We are so thankful for her.  Xiomara lives on this mountain, as does most of her family.  She has 14 siblings.  Right away I admired her effort and good attitude.  She genuinely seems to care for us and the boys here.  She is young, married, and has a 3 year old daughter that comes with her on Saturdays.  They live with her mother-in-law.   Today at lunch we were talking with her about wanting to have a bilingual school here.  She shared that she had never been to school.  She is such an intelligent lady, she reads and writes.  She says that she learned to do these things from looking and learning from the bible at night.  She wants so much for her daughter to have an education and be bilingual.   I admire Xiomara.  She works hard to help her family and us.  I am thankful to serve with someone like her.   Paula
