Family Story:

Jose Luis and Maria are originally from Oaxaca and met here in Ensenada because they worked together. Jose Luis attended a Christian church and he once spoke with his pastor and asked for advice. Jose wanted to get married and his pastor told him to pray about it and that God would send him the perfect wife. He later met Maria and after dating for 6 months, they got married and started their family. After they had their first child, Daira, they had a son, Jose Manuel. When Jose Manuel was 1 1/2 years old, they took the baby to see the doctor one day because he had a fever and wasn't doing well. The doctor in Maneadero said that the baby was fine, and that it was just an infection and with a prescription shot he would get better and they could return home. After returning home, the baby started to feel very cold and the next day he had gotten worse. They took him back to the hospital, this time to Ensenada, but he didn't get better. He was hospitalized and later passed away. It was something very difficult for Jose Luis and Maria to deal with. But their faith in God helped them to overcome. After some time they had another daughter, and this brought joy back to their home. God has given them strength to get through whatever life hands them. They say that the baby looks a lot like their son who died. This family is currently living in a small 1 room house built out of wood. Jose Luis has faith that they will one day have a proper home.
