” I got married in 2017 in the Quetzaltenango temple. I have 2 small children. I met Bountiful Children’s Foundation through my mother who is a coordinator. They called me as a coordinator in 2021. I have learned to value things more as I have helped pregnant and nursing mothers and children. I have seen miracles in many families. Thanks to the foundation many children no longer go to bed on an empty stomach. I collaborate with lots of love. I like to help and serve others. Thank you to the donors for their support and service. May God always shower blessings on your family.” –Ericka
