I feel so excited to tell you about my family and me. I am Fernando Vicente Calachij Hernandez, and I am now 14 years old. I no longer attend school, so I work as a day laborer to help my parents financially. My father works hard as a day laborer to cover the home expenses while my mother works as a seamstress and raises domestic animals for selling to help with the income. Because we live far away from the urban area, the pandemic has not affected our economy or health; God has been faithful with us and has kept us safe.
We received grocery bags from the feeding program and they were a great blessing for the whole family. I thank you so much for being aware of us, and I pray God pays you back for all you have done for us. We are all healthy. We attend Church of Christ and we have services on Wednesday and Sunday; they last one hour. Lastly, I want to tell you that I gave this information by phone to a LW Evangelism teacher. The staff did not meet me personally because they are avoiding physical contact as much as possible since they want to protect us from the current virus. I hope you find lovely my letter.
