I am so glad you can read my personal information, God bless you. I am Anibal Estuardo, and I am 10 years old. I am repeating 3rd grade, I usually go to my school every 15 days to leave my homework and receive new study guides to study from home. I use WhatsApp and I need to have internet in the cellphone to receive some information from my teacher. Studying from home has been harder for me because I do not have my teacher´s support. It is the reason why I am repeating my grade. At this grade, I should be able to read, but I am still not doing it well. I missed attending the feeding program during the pandemic. I especially missed the food; thank God, the program is open again. I walk about 20 minutes to get to the program. My mother tries to help my father with the incomes by working in a plant nursery. My father is working as a guard in San Sebastian farm in our village.
By the grace of God, my family and I are in good health. My family and I usually share lunch on Sundays all together, it is very special for me. Last Christmas we only celebrated at home with my parents and siblings for the pandemic situation. We used to celebrate with my grandparents and uncles. For now, we are not attending any church. We rent the house in which we live, and it has water and electricity services. We have one room made of tin sheets both walls and roof with cement floor. Thankfully, God has provided for our home expenses through my parents’ job. I appreciate the grocery bags that Living Water has been delivering during this pandemic time; each product is a big blessing for us. As a family our principal needs are food, clothes and shoes. I tell you the LW team called us and gave us a date in the program, so my older brother provided in person this information for you. Hope to hear from you soon. Many blessings!
Hugs with much love,
Anibal Estuardo Monroy Otoy
