My Story

I greet you cordially and I wish you many successes in your daily activities. I am Yolanda Pricila De La Cruz Canil and my age is 13 years old. Actually, we continue attending Full Gospel Church. We thank the LW evangelism team who shared the Gospel with us. My mother listened to them attentively and now, she is sure of her salvation in Jesus Christ. My mother´s name is Martilia Canil Cuin, and she is 27 years old. She is a housewife, and she weaves typical clothes for selling to get some income. Moreover, we grow corn for our consumption. At home, we raise chickens.  My father is Mario De La Cruz and he is 30 years old. He continues to earn a living by making tiles in the factory. Let me tell you that thanks to God, my family is in good health.

This year I no longer attend school and last year I passed sixth grade. At the moment, I am working in a tortillas business every day in the mornings and afternoons.  My parents strive to support my siblings at school. Nowadays, school supplies are expensive, and it is very hard for them to cover our expenses. I want to become a good teacher when I am older. I like every season of the year and all celebrations because these are opportunities to share with my family. My favorite beverage is coffee. On my birthday, I enjoy having a special lunch like fried chicken. Among sports, I like to play soccer. My family and I are grateful to you and to LW because our lives have been blessed with meals, medical and dental attention, and spiritual support. We are a big and humble family, so our priority needs are groceries and clothes.  I hope you enjoy reading my letter. May God bless you everywhere you are!

Kind regards,

Yolanda Pricila De La Cruz Canil
