On a mission trip to Guatemala with my daughter, I learned about a weaving ministry led by Hilda Perez. Hilda teaches women in her village to weave. She and her husband Roduel live in Ixcan, an area where many refugees settled after Guatemala’s civil war. Not only is weaving a learned skill that helps to sustain the women’s families, it provides stress relief, and gives them a sense of purpose. There’s something beautiful about helping to give another woman some purpose in her life. Read more about the Guatemalan Weaving Ministry.
