tati is the best

i just wanted to share a little more about how awesome tati is….

i believe i mentioned in a previous post that violeta has been very sick…. if not, please pray for her, she is still very ill.  i haven’t been to see her in a while.  they say she is doing a little better, but she is still unable to work.  violeta is one of the women of the art co-op that has been a friend to me, and it makes me very sad to see her like she is.  she has some form of severe anemia, and in the past year she lost both of her parents to TB.  i’m not a doctor, and i wish i knew more about what to do for her.  there are people tending to her, but she doesn’t really have anyone to help her all of the time, or help her with her work.

before rachel left she had talked with violeta’s brother about doing her work for her, but he didn’t want to do anything without being paid.  understandable, but now he has completely stopped, and the art co-op just can’t afford to pay violeta if we don’t have any of her work to sell.  i was feeling burdened by this and i just didn’t know what to do.

yesterday i went into the village to work with tati on some things.  we were going over what women were missing work, etc.  she informed me that SHE DID ALL OF VIOLETA’S WORK FOR HER.  i was shocked.  she said that she felt bad and wanted her to receive her pay.  so she stayed up late every night and finished a month of work in one week!  i am continually amazed by tati’s initiative and compassion for others.  the art co-op would be a complete disaster if not for her.  she is the glue that holds it together.

praise the Lord for tati, and please continue to pray for violeta.
