to look forward with desire, trust and reasonable confidence : she hoped for positive change and freedom from fear.
Chan, a tender and strong young woman living in poverty, has experienced a darkness many of us only read about. Her life is one of great struggle. She lives in a system where there are very little resources. Her husband soon becomes very violent caught in a cycle of alcohol abuse. Chan often wonders if there's more to her life than barely keeping her 5 children fed and clothed. However, she has something inside her that's overcoming the darkness she faces. She has hope. She embodies hope. Hope is redefining her story.

Chan chose not to be debilitated by her dark situation. Hope rose from deep within her when she was introduced to a community of women who believed in a purpose for her life beyond struggle and darkness. Hope moved Chan's desperate heart to be brave and seize an opportunity to learn and work safely with LandMine Design. Hope made a way for her to get a new home when her hut was falling over and unlivable. Hope made a way to enough food to eat and education for her children.
May Chan's depth of hopefulness in the midst of adversity speak to each of us never to give up; always keep fighting and come out on the other side, stronger. When hope comes, darkness trembles.
