My Story

Hello! I am Moises Elias. I am 13 years old and I attend 3rd grade. I receive classes only on Mondays and I give my homework to my teacher every week. For me, it is very difficult to move forward in my studies because the time is not enough to comprehend the lessons. Sometimes, I get disappointed, and I think about dropping out of school. My mother is the one who strives to support our family since my father passed away. Currently, she works in a tortilla shop in Chimaltenango Department and comes to visit us every month. My brother Sebastian and I are living with my grandparents because my mother took my younger siblings with her.

Unfortunately, during this pandemic situation, my mother ran out of work for a time, and it was very hard for her to supply the necessities. Nevertheless, when we were passing through difficulties, we received support from the feeding program. God is so good with us and during this pandemic situation, He has never left us alone and is providing for us. My mother personally wants to express her gratitude for the grocery bags that you are giving us through Living Water/ Adopt A Child. We felt so happy when the help arrived. We pray to our Lord to bless you for all your love and generosity toward us. Fortunately, we are healthy and the coronavirus has not affected us. For now, we do not attend church, but we have thought to look for a church go attend and praise the Lord. I want to let you know that a collaborator of LW called my mother, Pabla Garcia by phone to get this updated information since the feeding program is still closed due to the pandemic. I say goodbye to you for now and I hope you keep safe. Many blessings!

With much love,

Moises Elias Riz Garcia
