Sponsor builds home for her student and family

NancyPreschool teacher Nancy Chirhart has shown great commitment to children in Guatemala over the years. A sponsor since 1999, Nancy has visited Guatemala every summer since 2009. She divides her time between volunteering in the classroom, building houses, taking Spanish classes, and visiting her sponsored students.

This year, Nancy had an extra special volunteer project — to help build a new home for her sponsored student, Marisol. She worked alongside Vision Team volunteers and Common Hope construction staff to build the house. “My heart was just dancing the whole time,” Nancy said.

One of the most memorable moments was the first tile laid in the new home. Nancy took a picture of Marisol standing on that new solid foundation. “This was an experience that could never be duplicated for me,” Nancy said. “And when I’m done, I”ll know that Marisol and her family are going to be safer, drier, and more healthy.” Many thanks, Nancy, for your committed support.

    I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and working alongside Nancy. Common Hope is blessed to have her their corner!
