Hello! It is a pleasure for me to greet you. I am Wilmar, and I want to share a little of my life with you. I am seven years old, and the people who I live with are my parents and my youngest brother Franklin. At the moment, we do not attend any church. However, I hope to do it soon. My mother and I are grateful to a member of the Evangelism team from LW because she shared the gospel and encouraged us to look for God. While she did this, she also collected my information for you. My father is Jose, and he is 30 years old. He supports our expenses by cutting coffee beans at the coast and farming the land. In addition, he cultivates corn for our consumption. My mother is Maria, and she is 28 years old. She keeps busy doing the chores and raising sheep, hens, and pigs for sale. Fortunately, my parents, Franklin, and I are doing well.
I want you to know that I am in first grade. I enjoy attending school because I like studying and the teacher explains the lessons. Besides that, my mother helps with my doubts about homework or provides me with school supplies. Christmas is the best season for me because I enjoy burning firecrackers. My native language is the Quiche dialect, but I would like to improve my Spanish speaking someday. I already know a bit about it. I like how some musical instruments sound, so I hope to become a musician in the future. My favorite juice is peach because this is the best one for me. When my birthday is closer, I love that my family sings the happy birthday song for me. There are many sports, but I prefer playing soccer with my brother. I want to take advantage of this moment to tell you that LW is important to my family and me. Our priority needs are food supplies, especially corn. However, the staff of this project blesses our lives with delicious lunches. Thank you so much for reading my letter!
