Hello everybody! My name is Rudy Danilo De La Cruz Riz and it is a privilege for me to greet you by means of this letter. I hope you are doing well along with your loved ones. I want to tell you that I just turned 14 years old and I am a fifth-grade student. I usually attend school for three hours and hand in homework on Tuesdays and Fridays. Thankfully, the present school method has been good for me because I have more time to do homework. I also want to tell you that my father no longer lives with us and he does not help us economically. For this reason, my mother struggles a lot for us; she works selling fruits in bags at school and weaving typical blouses. However, when the virus spread all over the world, she was no longer able to sell her products because the school was closed. Thankfully, my brother Gabriel has helped us a little financially since that time; he is in the United States.
In this way, we have seen God’s fidelity in our lives. Our Lord also allowed us to received grocery bags from Living Water. Those were a great help for us when we did not have enough money for our food. So, I am really grateful to you for bringing us your loving support. Fortunately, all of us are in good health. My mother and I are members of Prince of Peace Church; we usually attend it for three hours on Wednesdays. Finally, let me tell you that my oldest brother Jose Armando assisted a member of the Evangelism team to update this information about me by phone since the staff want to protect us from the current pandemic. May God multiply your goods and His love always live in you!
In Jesus name,
Rudy Danilo De La Cruz Riz
