My Story

Hello! I am Pedro Morente Gomez, and I am writing this letter to tell you a little about my family and me. I am 14 years old and I no longer attend school; I only passed my sixth grade last year. Currently, I am working as a mason’s helper and I go to make wells in different villages. My mother earns a living by raising hens and pigs to sell and doing the laundry for others. Due to the pandemic, there was a time that my oldest brothers did not have work and could not help our mother financially. We passed through a lean time but we survived thanks to the support from Living Water. God has been faithful with us because He has never abandoned us, has kept us safe from the virus and has always put a plate of food on our table.

We received grocery bags from the feeding program and they were a great blessing for us because we got them when we did not have money to buy food. I pray God blesses this Ministry for all the support I have received; I am so grateful for that. Thank God, my family and I are in good health. We are members of the Catholic Church and we attend mass on Monday and Friday. Lastly, I want to tell you that my oldest sister helped me to give this information by phone to a LW Evangelism teacher. The staff did not meet us personally because they are avoiding physical contact as much as possible since they want to protect us from the current virus. I would like to have news from you soon.

Yours truly

Pedro Morente Gomez
