Hello! Good morning! I am glad to greet you through this letter. I am so thankful to God to have the opportunity to share with you a little about my life. I live with my parents and my siblings. My mother´s name is Sabina and she does the household chores at home. She raises sheep, hens, turkeys and some pigs to sell and she helps economically. My father´s name is Sabino and he goes to pick coffee at the coast and he gives us money to cover our home expenses. When he comes home he looks for a job as a farmer because the people begin to grow corn. I have four brothers and three sisters. My siblings Isabela, Manuel and Pedro work and they contribute with the expenses. My siblings Daniel, Juana and I attend school. My younger brother is Victor and he stays at home. My sister Maria got married and she lived apart but she had problems with her husband and they separated and now she is living with us. She is expecting a baby.
Thank God, my family and I are in good health. I am in the 3rd grade at school and I am not repeating my grade. My favorite subject is communication and language. At home, I help to tend the sheep, I wash clothes and I sweep the floor so that my mother can rest. My favorite moments are when I attend church with my family and they have an activity of thanksgiving for the church and for the harvest. We help in the different activities and work at church. Usually this activity of thanksgiving is on July and my mother does everything possible to buy us some clothes to wear in this special day. When I grow up, I would like to find a job and help my family economically. I want to find a job as a ¨tortillera¨ (person who makes tortillas). I like to play tag. We attend Church of Christ and I like to sing praises. I ask for your prayers for my studies. Take care of yourself. I thank you for supporting me through the feeding program.
With much love and many blessings,
Eva Maricela Morente Simaj
