Elvia came to Emmanuel as a teenager. She graduated from the high school here and then went on to study education in Tegucigalpa. In 2018, Elvia returned to complete her student teaching at the school in Emmanuel and felt the Lord calling her to stay more permanently to help in the school and to help David and Lydia wherever they needed her.
She is the primary Administrator over the school. She is also the leader of all of the girls houses and plans activities such as soccer tournaments for the teenage boys and girls, but spends most of her time with the big girls as their house leader.
Her favorite times at Emmanuel is when she is able to see the children playing and to see them experience and enjoy freedom and happiness.
