My Story

Hello! Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that I walk for five minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Rufina Ester Esperanza but everybody affectionately calls me Rufina. I am 16 years old and I had my birthday in July. I dropped out of school a couple years ago because I did not like it very much. During this time, I have been helping with the household work.

The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My father was working in the United States but he returned at the beginning of this year. Currently his job consists of farming the land and other times, he works as a barber in Zacualpa town. My mother´s duties are doing the housework and raising domestic animals. My family and I are members of Assembly of God Church, but for now we are praying at home due to the pandemic situation. I am grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.

God bless you!
