Hello! Good afternoon! I am glad to write you this letter. Thank God, my family and I are in good health. I enrolled at school this year and I am in the 1st grade. I am learning the vowels. In the afternoons, I play toy cars with my brother. I really enjoy sharing time with them. My father works as a day laborer and he gathers firewood. He also goes to cut sugar cane at the coast from November to February and he supports us with our basic needs. My mother does the household chores at home. She raises chickens and sells them when necessary.
My family and I attend Catholic Church and I like to sing praises. I like to attend the feeding program because I receive delicious food and my favorite meal is hamburger patties. I feel happy at Christmas time because my parents buy me some clothes. My mother does not prepare ¨tamales¨ (typical dish) as many families do because we go visit with one of my uncles and he gives us some. I thank you for supporting me through the feeding program. May God bless you richly! I will pray for you.
With much love and many blessings,
Jaime Chingo Lux
