Tough Times & Faith-Trials (Part 4 of 6)

Juan and Carmen speaking at Nayeli’s “quinceñera” (15th birthday party) last July

Last fall, Carmen began taking a government course to become licensed to start a government-funded day-care for small children for lower class workers (most of our city falls into that category). After taking the required training and securing a location for the day-care, they worked tirelessly for a couple weeks to fix up, repair, clean, paint, and do all the necessary details to pass the inspection for opening and running such a venture.

After spending a good deal of money to do all this, they found themselves in a tight spot when the government then ran out of money to make the promised subsidies for their business! Eventually the funds came through but they arrived over a month late and with many bills to pay, this was another faith-trial along their spiritual journey.
