Looking for Joy Through Literacy
Month 3 of Literacy Class for Narasaveni
Hope Builders follow Narasaveni’s progress through literacy class with monthly updates.
At 30 years old, Narasaveni already felt hopeless and anxious about her life. She and her husband and two daughters live together in a one room mud hut with a palm leaf roof. Narasaveni’s husband, Gangaraju, is an alcoholic and addicted to smoking and gambling. He and Narasaveni work as agricultural day laborers, and their wages are insufficient to support their family. His addictions consume so much of their income that they can barely survive.
Narasaveni explained, with tears, that “there is no peace in the family. Gangaraju drinks every day, and comes home and beats me for no cause. I am crying and crying.” She despaired, feeling as though there was no hope for change in her circumstances.
When the literacy class began in her village, for the first time, she felt hope. She joined the program, and is learning to read, to do basic arithmetic, and writing small words. She practices her reading by trying to read sign boards. She has worked hard on her lessons and is now studying Primer Book #1.
When she shared about her circumstances with the literacy teacher, he and the other students prayed for her and are asking God to deliver Gangaraju from his bad habits and behavior so that Narasaveni can find joy.
Please join them in praying, “that peace prevails in the family of Narasaveni.”
