Maya Monthly November 2018
Thanksgiving is one of America’s most beloved annual holiday and it officially kicks off the “Holiday Season”. Although families gather together to participate in various traditions from football, parades, turkey feasts, and more recently shopping, it is a day of thanksgiving and prayer. It is a day to be grateful of the many blessings bestowed upon us.
Maya Missions is blessed to have an incredible team of dedicated individuals in Mexico constantly trying to improve the lives of the impoverished people in the Yucatan pueblos. One of the blessings we are thankful for is our afterschool programs that provide students with opportunities for life-changing choices. We are thankful for Cinthia Sanchez, Estela Sosa, and Marilene Elk for their dedication to the ninos in the villages.
Editor – Maya Indian Missions
My name is Esthela Sosa and I’m 26 years old. I live in the village of Komchen. I have a MA in Social and Community Psychology and I now work for Ayudar es Compartir (Maya Indian Missions) in the After School Program in Cosgaya. I have also supported the village of Sierra Papacal. We help children who come from families with few economic resources so that they can do better in their grade schools and eventually attend a college or university program.
Before joining Ayudar Es Compartir, I was a scholarship recipient. Thanks to the support I received I was able to graduate from the university and now I can do what I like by working with the village children. I really enjoy my work and it also allows me to help my family financially. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your donations. I am sure they help improve lives. I know that because my life has changed for the better.
We are happy to announce that we have a BRAND NEW WEBSITE! It shares what the Maya Indian Missions are about and includes some wonderful pictures of the Maya youth and adults that we serve.
Have a look! We dare you to watch the carousel on the “What We Do” -> “After School Programs” and not crack at least a small smile! Enjoy.
