Hello! How is your day? It is a great pleasure for me to greet you through this letter and tell you about my life. I hope you are in good health together with your loved ones. I tell you that I live with my parents and siblings. My mother’s name is Marta and she works as a weaver. My father’s name is Genaro and he works as a farmer in his own land and with our neighbors. We have some hens and turkeys at home and we sell them when we are in need of money. I have three sisters and one brother. Thank God, we are all in good health. I attended my second grade this year and my favorite subject is mathematics. I like attending school and doing my homework. I walk for about five minutes to arrive to school and forty minutes to arrive to the feeding program.
I love attending the program and my favorite dish is fried chicken. I spend good moments with my family for Christmas and we have “tamales and ponche” for the dinner. My friends, neighbors and I light some fireworks, and we wait until midnight to see how the colorful fireworks light the sky. My dream is to finish all my studies and become a professional person. I like playing hide-and-seek, tag and marbles with my brother and friends. My family attends Church of Christ and I enjoy singing praises to our Lord. I thank you for all the support you are giving to Living Water. I am sure God will reward you for it. I say goodbye to you for now hoping to have good news from you soon.
With much love
Juan Alfredo Rodiguez Ordonez
