My Story

Chixocol, where your child lives, is a very small village nestled in a mountain valley in the state of Quiché, Guatemala. Life in this state is very difficult. Most families live in one-room adobe houses with dirt floors and a small, attached kitchen. The extremely poor live in houses made of corn stalks. In the past few years electricity and water have become available to most people in the area - however, indoor plumbing is very rare. Most of the families are farmers or shepherds and live off the fruits of their labors. Public education is available for those who can afford it and consider it of value.  Life in Quiché is always a challenge.

Hello! My name is Kimberly Estefania Us Garcia. I am a healthy child who was born on September 14, 2018. Currently, I am 5 years old, and I am not attending school yet due to my age. I stay at home playing with my dolls in my free time. I love the color pink, and I like dogs. My favorite food is fried chicken. I only have one sister. My family and I attend a Methodist Church. My father’s name is Francisco Us Ajqui, and he works as a farmer to support us. My mother’s name is Elvira Garcia Jimon, and she works hard at home and takes care of the family.

We live in a house that belongs to my grandmother, and it has two rooms and a separate kitchen. The house is made of adobe with a tile roof and dirt floor. We have electricity but no running water; my grandma provides us with this service. We have hens and pigs as domestic animals. Our frequent needs are groceries; we are also praying so that God provides us the resources to pay my school supplies for next year. The feeding program is located 1 hour away from my house, and I take a moto-taxi or public bus to get there. My mom helped me to give this information to an Evangelism teacher. I thank you for reading my little letter, and I hope you find it interesting.

Warm greetings
