Alexander and Dorisaba are from Chiapas a State in the far south of Mexico, and that's where they met. Dorisaba did not want to have a relationship with anyone, but circumstances brought her to go and live with Alexander because her sister was very mean to her. Dorisaba had fled to Puebla (a state next to Mexico City) because her sister hit her often, so Alexander suggested they live together. Their children were born in Chiapas.
Alexander couldn't find work and their children were often sick, so they decided to come to Ensenada. Dorisaba's Mother also lived in Ensenada, but she returned to Chiapas, as she kept getting sick because of the difference in climate. So the place where Alexander and Dorisaba live, is the room where the mother was living.
Dorisaba's brother helped with the property and is actually helping to pay it off. There are only two payments left to pay it off.
Alexander works in the field Monday to Saturday and if there is a lot of work, he works on Sunday as well.
It has been very difficult for them to build a little home or even a good room to live in because there is just not enough money to be able to do that, but they know that to receive a home would be God's blessing on their lives.
