Hello dearest sponsor! I hope that you and your family are doing well. I am pleased to be able to write this letter for you. I want to tell you that my family and I are in good health. We raise peas to sell and help with the family expenses. My father works as a farmer and my mother is in charge of taking care of us. Also, my father has a truck that he sometimes uses to make trips. However, he does not always work in that. We do not travel to the coast to work. I am in the 4th grade and my favorite course is Mathematics. My favorite sport is soccer and I like to play with my cousin in the woods.
When I get home from school, I help a little with the chores like looking for firewood. For now, I do not know what I want to be when I grow up, but I want to be a good worker and make money in order to help my family. For us, Holy Week is a joyful time because we eat bread with honey. Also we are reunited with all of our family. We attend a church called Prince of Peace and I like to learn about God there. I give thanks to God for your life and for the help that you have give me. I hope that God helps all of your plans succeed this year. Take care of yourself.
Blessings and much love,
Tomas Chingo Gutierrez
