Hello! How is your day? I pray God blesses you greatly and I hope you are doing well together with your loved ones. I send you warm greetings and huge hugs. I want to tell you that I am in good health and my family is also. My father abandoned us many years ago. My mother works as weaver and washes clothes for others to cover our needs. She also raises hens for selling. My uncle Santos Barrera helps us financially and gives us some groceries. He works as a farmer and has his own family. I have two sisters and I am the only boy in the family. I attended my second grade this year, and I did my best to pass it. I like playing cars and soccer. I love Christmas time because my family prepares “tamales” for the dinner.
I want to go to work in the United States when I am older in order to help my mother financially because she is a single parent and has had to work very hard to support us. I am grateful to God because He has given my mother the strength to go ahead with us. I am now on vacation so I help one of my uncles to look after his cows. My family attends the Catholic Church and I love hearing God’s Word. I live far away from the feeding program but I like attending it because it is a great blessing for us. I thank you for supporting Living Water, and I pray God rewards you for it. I say goodbye to you for now.
With much love
