Hello! I am so happy to send you my greetings with much love and I hope you are doing very well. Thank God my family and I are in good health. We enjoy every day together as a family. Since I am not attending school, I help my father to farm the land and gather firewood. My father works as a farmer and day laborer. My mother is a housewife and weaves typical clothes. We grow corn every year during winter, and we use it for our consumption. Occasionally I go to work as a day laborer and with that money I cover my expenses. Sometimes I help my family a little bit.
I no longer attend school because I did not want to continue. My dream is to grow vegetables to sell and in that way get money to support myself. I enjoy going out to play football or marbles with my friends. I love to celebrate Christmas because it is a good time to share with my family. My mother cooks tamales and ponche de frutas (typical food and hot fruit punch). I like to light firecrackers with my siblings and cousins. It is so much fun. We attend Prince of Peace Church. I accepted Jesus in my heart and I like to sing praises. I would like to learn how to play the piano, and I trust in God to do it someday. Thank you very much for your support to me through Living Water. I leave you for now. May God bless you always!
May God bless you in everything you do!
With much love
Mardoqueo De La Cruz Cux
