Jesus the Carpenter
Jesús Alberto Mayorga Lemus, Copán Ruinas
"We were poor. My parents couldn’t afford to send us to school. So I decided to learn a trade to earn some money. I decided to learn carpentry and I went to work. I was 13. I didn’t get paid for three years. My shoes were broken and I had patches in my trousers. It was hard. When I was visiting my girlfriend I had to hide the holes in my shoes by putting my foot up behind me.
I’ve suffered, but you learn from suffering and you can use it to become better - a better son, a better brother, a better friend, a better husband. Without God, we aren’t anything.
I fell in love and got married when I was 16 and a half. We had four children."
