Family Story:

Delfina was born in Oaxaca (Southeastern Mexico). She is a very hard working mom of 5, earning around $75 dlls a week. When she was six years old her mother asked her to leave school and find work to help support their families needs. Later on at age 8 Delfina and her family moved to Ensenada. She met her first boyfriend at the age of 18 and got pregnant with her first son Fernando. His father wasn’t in the picture at all and never supported them, but Delfina carried on with life. A year and a half later, she met another man who is the father of her other 4 children. Their father mistreated Delfina, not only in their home but also in public. For this reason she decided to leave him and try to find a better way to raise her children. With some money she had saved, she bought a piece of land, and with wood and materials she found she was able to build a room for them to live. She heard about YWAM and has asked for help to continue to move her family forward.
